Make sure that you are not running the autorun script through 'su'.
Several years ago, I made the mistake of editing /etc/rc.d/rc.local
and doing something like this:

su mudacct -c /home/mudacct/mud/autorun

Because of security issues, any program that runs through su will
not dump a core. Also, the problem may be with your mud getting
SIGHUP and that won't cause a core dump, but it will certainly stop
your mud.
