Yes, you're right, we should.  There's a patch on its way.

This is still a problem, regardless -- that function will be called every time
a domain starts or stops, so you will still get multiple attempts to dump
core.  Could you spin a patch to record the failure in the store, so that we
don't try and dump core again?
