I could use a core dump on OS X, but I can't figure out how to generate one.
Here's what I've been doing:

1. In the terminal:  limit coredumpsize unlimited
   (compensates for OS X's default value of 0)

2. Launch my app

3. In terminal:  kill -9 4444
   (or whatever the process ID is)

The app terminates as expected but there's nothing in /cores. What else do
I need to do to generate a core dump?

I'm not going to be able to answer your question directly but I don't think the KILL signal that you are passing as "-9" generates a core dump. SEGV and QUIT do but in quickly checking this morning, I can't seem to be able to send those signals in a kill command.
