It works fine when defined as a fun in the erlang shell.
But when compiled in a module it's the same behavoiur as
Sean has pointed out.

All,

There seems to be a small problem with binaries in R7B:

test(<<B/binary>>) when size(B) < 4 ->
	small;
test(<<1, B/binary>>) ->
	large.

calling test(<<1, 2>>) returns large
calling test(<<2, 2>>) returns small

It works fine in the debugger..
