I am having some trouble with erl_interface where the
communications between the C process and Erlang seem
to get bunged up.  One problem I have is that when many
messages are sent quickly to Erlang from C some/many
will fail with EAGAIN ("Resource temporarily unavailable").
I am still thinking through whether this problem should
best be solved by changes to erl_interface and/or to my
C code.  

Another problem which I do not yet understand is that 
sometimes the Erlang node will produce the following 
messages in the logs:

===== ALIVE Fri Sep  1 11:32:49 2000

===== ALIVE Fri Sep  1 11:32:49 2000

Hmmm... any ideas?
