Probably system daemons are configured not to dump core with a "ulimit -c 0"
somewhere.

You can turn this off by putting the following command in the MIMEDefang
startup script right before the multiplexor is invoked:

	       ulimit -c unlimited

That should force the creation of a core file when the multiplexor
segfaults.  One wrinkle is that depending on where it segfaults, the
current directory might not be writable, so you should change directories
to /var/spool/MIMEDefang before invoking the init script to restart
MIMEDefang.

Regards,

David.
