Core file in Home folder after installing VMware tools on Linux Mint 18.2

Fresh installs of  Linux Mint 18.2 (Ubuntu 16.04 LTS)


After installing VMWare Tools and rebooting a core (program crash data) file is found in the Home Folder.  This is happening on VM's on both ESXi 5.1 U2 Build 1483097 & ESXi 6 U2 Build 4600944.

The file is approx 6 MB in size.  I've deleted it, but it is recreated the next time the VM is rebooted.

Viewing the file with Nano it appears to be related to the graphical x environment as there are a number of references to gtk-default-menu items, toolbars, styles, as well as listbox's, menu buttons, radio buttons, background colors, etc.

A Google search for this turned up a post in the Linux Mint Forum from Dec 2013 for this same issue, but the OP never posted a followup to say what the issue was.

It doesn't appear to be causing an issue with stability, but the VM's have only been running for a couple of days.

Has any one else seen this?
