if you have many users on your muds, upgrade to 1.2.13 at least, 1.2.8 has
some network code bugs.  As far as dumping core, it depends on what shell
you use...  for bash, 'ulimit -c unlimited' , for csh/tcsh, 'unlimit core'
or 'limit core unlimited'

when it crashes use gdb to examine the core, or run the muds under gdb (if
you can reproduce the bug on demand)
