[distcc] Where does distcc --daemon put its core files?

I'm trying to get my first distcc farm working and having no luck so
far. Work is being passed around but the distccd child processes are
crashing every time.

I'll make a debug build & try to figure it out but I'm hoping someone
will see something familiar and save me some time. Here are the details,
verbose log files attached.

Running on RHEL5, AMD hardware, 4 dual-core CPUs per box: Linux
2.6.18-8.el5 #1 SMP Fri Jan 26 14:15:14 EST 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64

distcc 2.18.3 x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu (protocols 1 and 2) (default port
  built Aug 15 2007 08:17:02

Buiilt with options "'CFLAGS=-O3'"

My environment on all machines has:
DISTCC_HOSTS=amd-33 amd-34 amd-35 amd-36 amd-37

I start the daemons like this:

for h in $DISTC_HOSTS; do
    ssh $h distccd --daemon --allow --verbose --log-file /tmp/distcc.log

I have symlinks for gcc and g++ to distcc in my PATH, my makefiles are unmodified. I run make -j20

I've attached client and server log excerpts. They may not correspond to each other but they're representative of the
errors I'm seeing, the full logs are just 1000s of repetitions of the same pattern.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions on how to fix it or how to further
investigate the problem.
