Yes, q() gives the same behavior.  I am using the 32-bit version of Erlang R16A.  I experience the problem on three different computers, a 32-bit netbook running Windows 7 Starter, a 32-bit desktop running Windows XP, and a 64-bit laptop running the 32-bit Erlang distribution on Windows 7 Home.

FYI no such strange behaviour on Windows 7 Home Premium, x86-64, R16A 64bit.
Does q() also give you such strange behaviour?

Temat: [erlang-bugs] R16A erl.exe does not exit properly on Windows.

The Erlang command line program erl.exe release R16A does not exit properly 

on Windows 7 Starter Edition using a 32-bit processor. 

When the shell is terminated using either init:stop() or halt() several 

hundred carriage-return line-feed sequences are printed and then Windows 

displays "erl.exe has stopped working." No crash dump is produced. 

This problem does not occur with the Windows shell werl.exe.
