Which poses the question: how can I have automated g-s core dumps

Does gnome-shell do suid games? Then sysctl fs.suid_dumpable
I don't know, does it? Also should it?
fs.suid_dumpable = 0
Can gnome-shell write to the right directory? sysctl kernel.core_pattern
Does it matter? It's dead, it shouldn't write anywhere; and it
probably can't as it's run as regular user.
kernel.core_pattern = |/usr/lib/systemd/systemd-coredump %P %u %g %s %t %c %e
It is systemd-coredump writing cores, not defunct gnome-shell.

Is gnome-shell not exceeding its core limits? ulimit -c and /proc/$$/limits
ulimit -c is 0, presumably inherited from gnome-session-binary
re: proc/..limits:

We also can see just above how systemd-coredump explicitly refuses to
dump core because core size is 0.

In before limits.conf:,
