Actually, that command sets the core file size as 0 but it is a soft
limit (something else could be increasing it).

The -H makes the limit a hard limit (i.e. cannot be increased).  That
may not be the issue but I agree with Jim check the current size to
see what is is currently and then proceed from there...
