Cannot obtain kernel dump in /var/crash

I've discovered reproducable kernel panic but I cannot obtain a dump.

I have in rc.conf:


... and in kernel configuration:

options         KDB
options         DDB
options         KDB_UNATTENDED
makeoptions     DEBUG=-g                # Build kernel with gdb(1) debug symbols

My RAM size is 768 MB and swap size is 1024 MB.

When rebooting after a crash I see in console:
Feb 22 13:40:41 crete savecore: unable to force dump - bad magic
Feb 22 13:40:41 crete savecore: no dumps found

Any suggestions? Thanks.

Kind Regards,	Alexander Shikoff
