  Even if you get a core dumped every time you press CTRL+\  ?  why?

Try ulimit -c 0, then run it (you should get no core dump)

SIGQUIT is supposed to dump core. Ulimit settings can suppress generation of core files. The difference between your machine and your friend's is likely just the ulimit settings.
