OK, I tried

  $ erl -name test
  Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.2 [source] [hipe] [threads:0]

  Eshell V5.2  (abort with ^G)

And in Emacs C-c C-d l and then ""
as node name. Note that my home system is only connected
via ppp to the net, not having a real domain (something
resolvable by DNS).

This seems to fail:

  >> REG_SEND: [TYPE erl-pid  14 0 0] rex [[TYPE erl-pid  14 0 0] [call distel rpc_entry (distel process_list nil) [TYPE erl-pid  1 0 0]]]
  << SEND: [TYPE erl-pid  14 0 0] [rex [badrpc [EXIT [undef ([distel rpc_entry (distel process_list nil)] [rpc -handle_call/3-fun-0- 6])]]]]

Any ideas?
