When a WP on linux has the hostname= setting in ucsrv.ini set to a very long name, the WP core dumps instead of throwing an error message.


1) on a Linux AE system, update ucsrv.ini to have a very long hostName= setting, for example:
2) Start a WP: nohup $PWD/ucsrvwp &

Expected behavior:
In a case where the long hostName string is valid, WP starts up

Actual behavior:
Process ends with:
[1]+  Aborted                 (core dumped) nohup $PWD/ucsrvwp  (wd: /usr/automic/ae/bin)


Log is created, but simply ends with:
