I upgraded to 8.2(1) tonight as well and now I'm seeing the same thing.
I haven't been keeping up with this list and so I didn't know about
the new "feature" until I started investigating why I was suddenly
getting these messages; Google pointed me to the list archives.
Is there an easy way to alter the script to use a regex that can then
exclude certain strings like "coredump" from the dir outputs?
I'll put a call into TAC next week and raise hell about this. There's
no excuse for this file's timestamp to be hit every time someone does a
'show run' (which is apparently the trigger for this "feature").
Besides, there's a big in disabling the 'coredump enable' command in
ASA(config)# no coredump enable
Type help or '?' for a list of available commands.
It shouldn't return a help string like that.
