Indeed. Reading your comments about how creation is skinny'd
down to 2 bits I began to wonder how I could figure out on
startup that I needed to bump up creation to '01'. The idea
of using get_pid() was a good one but using the last 2 bits
of that isn't going to provide any guarantees of uniqueness.
Then I realized that epmd can keep track of this stuff and
of course that's why it does.
Let's call it a bug. Especially since it's documented. :)
