In case anyone is interested ...

Documentation nit:

http://www.erlang.org/doc/r8b/lib/kernel-2.7/doc/html/index.html

Wherein it says:

	"At start-up, the first action of the standard auth 
	 server is to read a file named $HOME/erlang.cookie"

This is repeated again later but the actual file is:

	$HOME/.erlang.cookie

The section on cookie() correctly refers to $HOME/.erlang.cookie.
