Tried it and it works. I've managed to fool it though by pausing the master
node using CTRL c for a minute or so. The node gets a big red cross in
appmon and the app starts up elsewhere. If I re-introduce the first node by
just selecting (c)ontinue from the CTRL c menu, and re-establish contact
with net_adm:ping/1, the application continues to exist on both nodes. I
guess this is testing partitioned network behaviour. Any suggestions of how
to get around this?

Rgds,
