Here it is:

Mar 5 11:12:27 mxapp1-1 gdm(pam_unix)[24581]: check pass; user unknown
Mar 5 11:12:27 mxapp1-1 gdm(pam_unix)[24581]: authentication failure;
logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty= ruser= rhost=
Mar 5 11:12:27 mxapp1-1 gdm[24577]: gdm_cleanup_children: child 24581
crashed of signal 11
Mar 5 11:12:27 mxapp1-1 gdm[24577]: gdm_cleanup_children: Slave
crashed, killing its children

I confirm you that I do have coredumps.

# file core.24977
core.24977: ELF 32-bit LSB core file Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV),
SVR4-style, from 'P'

Core was generated by `/usr/lib/gdmgreeter'.

But I have no debugging symbols. I will recompile it with debugging
enabled and will comes back with results. Thanks for the tip.

Have a nice day,
