[typo] ruby18.core = 99Megs!

Today I got a panic from my server - filesystem is full on /  I took a look, even though I hadn't added anything to /, and lo an behold I had this in /root:

101648 -rw-------   1 root  wheel      99M Mar 22 03:45 ruby18.core

How can I stop ruby from writing a core here, and/or how can I limit it to a smaller size?  In the Unix partitioning scheme they advocate a small / partition for security, this mine is only 250Megs.
