I also found a core dump when I checked my over-clocked AMD 5x86 running
v2.002 this morning. The log contained a message similar to Corey's,
although I can't recall it precisely off-hand. I've run the earlier
versions of rc5 as well as deschall, but this is the first dump ever. My
buffer files were not left-overs.
