I put debug compiled binaries on the front-end. It states it dumped a 
core file, but nothing to be found. I have gone through the man core 
documentation and I can't find why it wouldn't write the core file. I 
even tried to run "mythfrontend.real --syslog local7" from an xterm and 
while it starts myth and says it generates a core when I try to watch a 
recording, the core can't be found. I also played with the apport system 
and after the crash there is a growing file 
/var/crash/_usr_bin_mythfrontend.real.1000.crash being generated. It 
grows up to almost 5 MB and then just end up being 86k. Don't know what 
is going on with that, but there is no stack trace after that.

I am running mythbuntu, do you know why I could not get a core file? 
XBMC has no issue generating one.
