Yes. Roy's latest timeout patches have stopped the lingering close
notifications, but the core dumps continue. The dumped image is so
trashed that it can't be backtraced. I believe the reason we haven't
seen more reports is that FreeBSD and perhaps Linux are disabling core
dumps by default as a security measure.

That's right. Let's get 1.2b8 out. We can't release while we still dump
core, however. That's a critical error.
