Maybe strace(1) can provide some information.  At least it will tell
you which signal killed the process and which files had been opened

It also makes sense to set 

      ulimit -c unlimited

in /etc/bashrc or whatever it is on your system.  This will allow the
system to dump core files of any size.  Note that a value set by root
cannot be increased by a user.

The core file can be loaded into gdb and a stack backtrace will
provide additional information.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
