Question regarding pid recycling.

Hi, 

I have a question regarding pid recycling.  On a running erlang node, which
is constantly spawning and killing pids, how long can one expect to wait
before the same pid is used *twice*?  I understand that at any given point
in time, pids are globally unique, but my question is about their uniqueness
over time.

How does the situation change when there are multiple nodes in the system?

Thanks ahead of time!
