I tried it, but it doesn't give me a core dump. It only shows one line
in syslog for each time that I start multipathd. Multipathd keeps
running with no noticeable errors though.

I'm running the system with a 2.6.23.8 kernel and it shows this error
one time per start of multipathd:

kernel: multipathd[2303]: segfault at 000000000000000a rip
00002baa8765f94f rsp 00007fff23b8e370 error 4
kernel: multipathd[3742]: segfault at 000000000000000a rip
00002b09ff82394f rsp 00007fffab9ca130 error 4
kernel: multipathd[4103]: segfault at 000000000000000a rip
00002adefdbe894f rsp 00007fffad604d90 error 4

Also I noticed that I get the "DELL     ,Universal Xpor" in my multipath
-ll output. Didn't get that before. Is that something to look at?
