acroread4 dumps core with FPE

Acroread4 on FreeBSD3.4-STABLE dumps core because of a
floating point exception, I can just see a splash-screen
pop up before it bombs.
The machine is a perfectly normal Celeron400.


1. dump core or not dump core


Some of my programs dump core, others don't. I tried
it on RedHat 6.1 and Mandrake 7.0 with kernels 2.2.14
and 2.2.15. I tried tcsh and bash with coredumpsize
set to 1GB. It seems to be application specific.

Is there any other criteria when suppressing apart from
the type of signal and the size limitation?
The application that doesn't dump core contains signal
handlers for some signals, but not for SEGV or ABRT.
