    Description

      ClhsdbLauncher.runCore() checks for Platform.shouldSAAttach(), which includes checks to see if you have ptrace related attach permissions and if you are "root" in case of OSX . Since this is corefile debugging, there is no need to check for these permissions since corefile debugging would not require super user privileges.
