or on fedora/redhat based distros, there is a file


with a line

	corelimit="ulimit -S -c ${DAEMON_COREFILE_LIMIT:-0}"

so either replace the 0 by "unlimited" or set the
DAEMON_COREFILE_LIMIT in /etc/sysconfig/init

Another thought: Do you happen to run abrtd? If so, this should
have written something to the syslog, though. So probably not.

Bye, bye
