The Discoverer server file system is filling up constantly to 100% from core dump files.

It is also observed that the Discoverer Preference server (dis51pr) will start, but then crash, then is automatically restarted via OPMN. The Process ID (PID) is noted to change (via opmnctl -l or ps -ef commands)
The core files are determined to be from the preference server via the command: file [corefile name]
