I originally had them included and I was getting the core dumps, but I removed them because I don't need them and I am still getting the core dumps.

This is a production box and it would be hard to have debugger turned on.
I don't know if it would be helpful, but PHP is also really slow on this machine. I know that PHP would cause a dump in the php.core file and not apache.core.

How do I inspect the core file to find out which module caused it?
