Googling suggests that adding the following to abrt.conf may make it not
do that:

OpenGPGCheck = no
ProcessUnpackaged = yes

But I don't know much about abrt, so I have no idea if that works, or if
there are any security implications.

If you happen to obtain the core file, note that it contains sensitive
information, such as the keys to your cell. Don't just give it out to

Also note that has various known issues that can cause the
fileserver to crash, and the 1.4 series doesn't usually get new releases
anymore. Regardless of what the root cause of this is, the suggested
solution is likely to just be "please upgrade".
