Right, thanks. Just upgraded a system to R9C.


BTW, with R9-C on FreeBSD-5.0, I can't net_adm:ping() a remote node
without frobbing ETS. This also used to happen on other BSDs.


erl -name foozle -setcookie baz
Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.3 [source] [hipe] [threads:0]

Eshell V5.3  (abort with ^G)
()1> net_adm:ping('').
pang
()2> ets:insert(inet_db, {res_lookup, [file,dns]}).
true
()3> net_adm:ping('').
pong


Bug or feature?
