A later message indicates that you solved this problem.
For future reference, if you spawn your processes using
proc_lib:spawn_link(M,F,A), you will get nicely formatted crash reports
when something goes wrong. This assumes that the OTP application SASL
is running (either call application:start(sasl,permanent) from the
command line or some program, or use 'erl -boot start_sasl')
