I've come to realize that, despite anything which may appear
in the documentation to the contrary, time values in Erlang/OTP
are always in milliseconds.

I naively believed the man page for the .app file:

	...
 	{maxT,         Seconds | infinity},
	...

And my application ran for 15 minutes instead of 10 days.  :)
