More modern systems sometimes leave a file named core.PID, where PID is
a number.  There may be other variations.  I usually search for
`*core*'.  Some systems need the command `ulimit -c unlimited' run
before the program which dumps core, though probably the default may be
changed to unlimited via some system pref parameter somewhere.

A CVS server would most likely be leaving the cores under a directory
under /tmp named `cvs-servXXXXXX', where XXXXXX is a random combination
of letters and numbers.  Normally CVS will remove the server tmp
directory, but it isn't supposed to after a core dump.

I can't do a whole lot without a core dump.  If none of the above work
for you, it is also possible to set "CVS_SERVER_SLEEP" to some number of
seconds on the server (most likely in inetd, xinetd, or a cvs server
wrapper script), then quickly connect to the server process using a
debugger while it sleeps, after starting it via Tortoise or whatever.

Good luck,
