hi all,

Please review this fix, where we use the knowledge available to us, like 
whether the ulimit is set, before deciding whether to tell the user in 
hs_err crash log that we dumped the core file, to match what actually 

Before this fix, we often assumed that the core file would be created, 
when in actuality that might not be the case.

I also extend an existing test to go with this fix.
