My amd64 -current system just crashed and rebooted a few minutes ago. 
Upon reboot, savecore wrote a rather large netbsd.0.core.gz file.  But 
gdb doesn't seem to know how to process it, not even after un-gziping, 
claiming that the file is not a valid core file.

Is there some magic incantation to make gdb read this file?  I'd like
to find out why my system crashed!  :)
