I retested it with the latest gcore.tar.bz2 using the same fc14 dumpfile
and it works OK.  

I did re-verify that it hangs with the older version:

# ls -l /root/gcore.tar.bz2 gcore.tar.bz2
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 28666 Jan 24 11:05 /root/gcore.tar.bz2  <- hangs
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 29266 Jan 27 10:15 gcore.tar.bz2        <- works OK

If you're still interested, I can make the vmlinux/vmcore available to you.

Thanks,
