kernel: pid #n (vmmouse_detect), uid 0: exited on signal 10 (core dumped)

Recently I have noticed a strange thing with my system.
Every time I log on to my system I find a line like "kernel: pid #n
(vmmouse_detect), uid 0: exited on signal 10 (core dumped)" where #n
is an integer just before the "login: ROOT LOGIN (root) ON ttyv0" in
Here is my /var/log/messages http://pastebin.com/PHrn5NQD
`man vmmouse_detect` says:
"vmmouse_detect is a tool for detecting if running in a VMware
environ-ment where vmmouse is used. It exits with a 0 return value
if the vmmouse client is enabled, and 1 if not."
So why vmmouse_detect is dumping the core on each login instead of
returning 1 or 0?
BTW I don't remember setting any startup script for vmmouse_detect. I
have xorg installed though.
So if starting vmmouse_detect on boot is importnat for xorg to
function properly (which I presume as I haven't configured
vmmouse_detect to start on boot and I think xorg has), how do I make
vmmouse_detect to exit cleanly. i.e. without dumping the core?
