Enabling core dumps

If the wrapper script doesn't do the trick then I suspect the kernel
itself is disallowing the core dump.  It's fairly standard practice
to not dump core for setuid programs (but sudo doesn't run programs
setuid).  It is also possible that your current working directory
is not writable by root (or whatever user you are running things
as via sudo).
