Yes. The core directory is always set up in the primary smbd process
irrespective of whether core files are enabled at that time. This is to
handle the case where the "enable core files" setting changes without a
daemon restart. If we re-read smb.conf and find that we should now be
producing a core file, it might be too late to set up the core
