[erlang-bugs] R15B : Included application missing. Master application starting at second try.

Sun Jan 22 11:12:44 CET 2012

When forgeting path to an included application (here myapp1 is an
included application of myapp0 ), the master application do not start as
expected, but start at second try.
Is it a bug or intentional ? I didn't see this in documentation ...
Did I miss something ?

(below I forgot ' -pa /home/dev/myapp1/ebin ')

$> erl -pa /home/dev/myapp0/ebin
