One can install syslog to the device and restart hildon-desktop.

(Just remember to uninstall or at least disable syslog when it isn't
anymore needed, the extra JFFS2 disk churn caused by it contributes
to things like: https://bugs.maemo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2615)

Core dumps are enabled by creating "core-dumps" directory to the memory

(If core dumps are sent to Nokia, also "sp-rich-core" package should
be installed from the tools repository[1] as it collects some extra
system information needed in outside device debugging, such as what
exact release is in question, memory usage statistics etc.)
