Dhcp segfault : any help appreciated!

No core file that I can find. However it seems that  root.s ulimit -c
is 0 normally on here. I have set that to unlimited for now, should that
allow creation of a core next time it crashes or is there any runtime
setting for dhcpd that needs to be used? Where in the filesystem would
the core get dumped normally?

If you got a core file, do:

	gdb /path/to/dhcpd /path/to/dhcpd.core

Then at the "(gdb) " prompt:


And email the results to dhcp-bugs at isc.org.

Trace files are generally only useful for finding out if the error
can be reproduced, and then providing an environment for such
