That is pretty strange. I'm not sure off hand what would be causing
this. I suggest you build distccd with debug symbols then run it
under gdb with --no-fork, or try to find the core files.
It should be dumping them in its cwd, but that may not be writable by
the process. Ubuntu puts in some special core-catching behaviour that
redirects them. I'm not sure if there is anything like that in Red
Hat (as I presume you're using), but that would be something else to
watch out for.
