To get a core file, you usually need to enable it with something like
"ulimit -c unlimited" in your shell.

This is a typical result of inability to open any fonts. We should
try to provide a better way to fail here---there's nothing really
wrong with XEmacs. The problem is that this exit is being invoked
from the error handler inside of Xlib, and it is non-trivial (to say
the least) to fix this in a way that doesn't open us up to serious
data loss if the X error handler should be invoked for a "real"
