I speculate the parent comment was referring to the frequency of core dumps: that he/she experiences more of them compared to the Python tracebacks you mentioned.

Disclaimer, I'm speculating that's what they meant, because I feel the same way. It's more common(for me) for Python to refuse to run than to run anyway and later crash, compared to C++. That said, Python isn't a good analogy there...Rust or Golang are more likely to refuse to run for bad code instead of running anyway and crashing later.
