Grr. I actually find it useful to symlink ~/core (well, not as useful
on NetBSD since it uses <progname>.core) to /var/tmp/core.jtk
I hate waiting for core dumps in my home directory to write over NFS,
and usually I don't want the core dump anyway.
I'd rather find a solution that is safe but allows dumping to symlinked
