sorry about that, the Ctrl+R replies, and Ctrl+E sends, and i accidently
pushed both at the same time.

what i meant to say was,
i don't GET a core dump :-P
otherwise i'd use it.
although that WOULD be a nice idea, to figure
out HOW to get the autorun script to pull the line number,etc out of the
core dump.
any ideas?
