You probably don't need to send a big core file. But sometimes it is
helpful to send some of the relevant debugging info from the core file.

Use gdb(1), like "gdb /path/to/executable /path/to/core".

Then do a "bt" to receive a backtrace. Possibly the few lines it reports
then will be helpful to research the problem further.
