lsof core dumps for one specific user



Running hpux 11.11 64 bit, lsof version is 4.77. I had a problem with user clr with too many open files - used "lsof -u clr" and it did show piles of open files - though these were not specific files  - just the directory. Stopped the problem processes and restarted. Now doing "lsof -u clr" causes coredump though "lsof -u oracle10" - or any other user does not. If I run lsof without flags and grep for the directory involved - or clr - the list comes back. Any ideas what this means?
