No, that one (I believe) relates to the /var/crash/netbsd.N files
being a mess - something goes horribly wrong in the way they're created
(I had observed that one as well, though I wasn't aware there was a PR
about it.)

That one is a nuisance bug, as one can always just use the /netbsd file
that had been booted when the system crashed instead.

Paul's problem is with the image file (the core) - or more likely, with
gdb (since crash(8) works).
