It looks like a serious bug.  Was dccm built with -g?  If sow, what does the stack trace from gdb of the core file look like?
If not, it would be good to rebuild with -b by

    /usr/local/dcc/libexec/updatedcc -eDBGFLAGS=-g

(or wherever you put the DCC libexec directory)

That should also be impossible, but it was some kind of dccm locking
problem again.

Is /usr/local/dcc an NFS file system?
If so, did you build with `./configure --with-bad-locks`?
You can tell by looking at the `./configure` command near the end of
