Great, that worked and was, like you described it. THANKS!You can look at the contents of /var/db/system/cores by running the following command from shell:
ls -l /var/db/system/cores
Some cores may be quite old from previous releases. These cores can be removed by running the command
If you see an smbd.core in there it's nothing to worry about and can be safely removed. There will be quite a few people with one because of a bug present in U1 and fixed in U2.
If you see cores that (1) aren't ancient and (2) aren't smbd.core, syslog-ng.core, or winbindd.core, you can tar them up and attach to a bug ticket
tar -cvzf /tmp/cores.tgz /var/db/system/cores(then use scp/sftp to copy it off). Since a core file may contain sensitive info, be sure to mark the upload as private.
