Description

I'm not sure if it's a bug or just a normal behaviour, but if i use another user for suricata (suri:suri for example) instead of root, i get

10/9/2014 -- 10:41:07 - <Info> - Core dump size is unlimited.
10/9/2014 -- 10:41:07 - <Info> - dropped the caps for main thread

So i guess with dropping the caps it looses the possibility to create a coredump. When i use root as user, it works.
