Ok, I thought start.sh included a ulimit command to do that. There's a 
comment suggesting that it would be taken out for release builds but I 
leave mine enabled:

# Make the OS give us .core-dumps if the server crashes
# TODO: Remove before release
ulimit -c unlimited

(This doesn't appear in the very latest script, but that script is broken 
because it lacks the path lookup to select 32 or 64 bit binaries, so I just 
recycled the previous start.sh version.)
