Well, it's a two-edged sword. ISTR that Fedora contrives to have
unique name for each core file, so they can pile up pretty fast if
you've got a commonly used library that goes buggy in some upgrade.
That's true even with every user limited to core_size = 0. The ABRT
tool is supposed to automatically detect crashing programs and save
core files and other information into /var/spool/abrt. I've gotten
into the habit of running abrt-gui once a week to see what crashed
when I wasn't looking, and clear out the info for any crashes I don't
care about (typically crashes of programs I'm working on).
