Core Known Issues List
This page concerns bugs in the HL2 Core, ie the closed-source side of things that can't be directly fixed via SDK code changes.
HL2.exe mysteriously segfaults if you forget to put the client.dll and server.dll in your mod's bin directory
Fix: Don't do that.
Update: the behavior here seems to have changed - now HL2 gives an equally mysterious "Server uses different class tables" message. Can anyone else confirm this?
Typing +showbudget in srcds causes an instantaneous crash
The stack trace is:

bin/tier0_i486.so fails to shut down when using threads
It looks like this would be fixed if Valve would recompile bin/tier0_i486.so with the -fuse-cxa-atexit gcc option. I can't wait for Valve to fix this, so instead:
Workaround: In the mean time what I've done with my mod is add an
alarm(10); to the bottom of
void CServerGameDLL::DLLShutdown(void) so that if bin/tier0_i486.so fails to exit, it will be killed.
