Description of problem:
In RedHat 7.2 by default no core files are generated. This should be
changed back to the old behaviour as in RH 7.1, e.g.,

ulimit -S -c 1000000 > /dev/null 2>&1

It's no solution to just forbid core files. They help in writing better

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Write a buggy program (or shutdown KDE, see bug #56816)

This was changed in order to save disk space, and in the understanding that
those that need core files know how to enable them.
