Running hpux 11.11 64 bit, lsof version is 4.77. I had a problem with user clr with too many open files - used "lsof -u clr" and it did show piles of open files - though these were not specific files - just the directory. Stopped the problem processes and restarted. Now doing "lsof -u clr" causes coredump though "lsof -u oracle10" - or any other user does not. If I run lsof without flags and grep for the directory involved - or clr - the list comes back. Any ideas what this means?

file core just shows - core file from lsof - received SIGSEGV. The command itself shows memory fault - though as I mentioned it works for other users on the system, and works without parameters....

Too many files opened for that user?
Using gdb to get a stacktrace from the corefile may be helpful.
