some basic questions

} Sometime ago I had lots of trouble with "unsafe" calls between named
} servers on different nodes. The problem turned out to be gen_server,
} which naivly sent the message to the named process, waited for a while
} and then resolved the name again to see if the process was alive. If
} it was alive it waited forever for the message (Timeout=infinity).
} Unfortunately my named process died and a new one was restarted with
} the same name. This lead to a situation where my message was delivered
} to one process and but the client was monitoring another one.
So are you suggesting that gen_server needs fixing?
