Uhh, the second argument to io:format/2 is supposed to be a list.
Thus, io:format("...~w", [L]) is the correct form.

If your process was created with spawn/3, och spawn_link/3, you
will not get any SASL crash report. If you instead use
proc_lib:spawn[_link]/3, you will get a crash report when the
process dies.
