[erlang-bugs] crashes when running two servers with the same name

Hi,

I experience crashes whenever I run two "erl" processes with the same name.

Originally I tried to start a named server and connect to it like this:

on terminal 1> erl -name FOO
on terminal 2> erl -remsh FOO

The first process runs fine while another one shows this error:
    *** ERROR: Shell process terminated! (^G to start new job) ***



Then I tried to run two erl processes with the same name:

on terminal 1> erl -name FOO
on terminal 2> erl -name FOO

The first process runs fine and the second one crashes:
    Crash dump was written to: erl_crash.dump
    Kernel pid terminated (application_controller) 
({application_start_failure,kernel,{shutdown,{kernel,start,[normal,[]]}}})


This does not seem to be related to compilation options or HiPE support. 
I tried different combinations for both v.11.2.4 and v.11.2.3.
The computer I use runs Gentoo Linux on Intel Core 2 Duo processor.

Could you please let me know how can I troubleshoot this issue?

Thank you,
Denys Rtveliasvhili
