You're dumping core in a shell script, so unless your mkdir function is
exported, or if you've arranged for non-interactive shells to read your
startup files, it's uklikely that your function has anything to do with it.

I'd check your $PATH: if `.' is in your path before /bin and /usr/bin,
which is a terrible idea for all sets of reasons, you could be resolving
`mkdir' to `./mkdir' and attempting to execute a loadable shared object.
