Hi all,

I'm trying to debug a problem seen on PrimeGrid with a CUDA app. The problem only seems to affect the Mac (linux and windows from the same code base appear to be OK), and the result is that the app dies with a segfault when it is shutting down (either at the end of the WU, or when being suspended).

The problem is, that even when I run the app standalone from the commandline, the BOINC library is catching the SIGSEGV, and reporting a bunch of stuff (executable name, BOINC library version, thread state, images description), when what I really want is just a core file that I can look at with gdb.

Is there any way to turn off this behaviour so I can get a core file?
