We see such errors when Chromium in development mode crashes.

The log should say what it is.

systemd-coredump uses a lot of CPU because it compresses the core
images, and they are always large, perhaps huge files (gigabytes in a
case of mine).

You can configure it in "/etc/systemd/coredump.conf"

Ah, ulimit -c doesn't work.

I think systemd-coredump should be improved: initially dump without
compression. Later, after dumping, compress just one file at a time, in
background. If a process dumps repeatedly, because it is started again
and again, don't dump.
