You can't control where core dumps go, they always go into the processes
current working directory. 

I'm all in favour of moving the scoreboard from /tmp. It was a really
dumb place to put it since it's not a temporary file at all. It should
go in /var somewhere, where exactly may be a little more difficult to 
agree on than people think since /var varies from OS to OS.

Alternatively, why can't it go in the web server log directory?
