How to automatically start an Erlang node at Emacs startup?

Hi,

Title says it all :-)

I use this in my .emacs file (was posted by a kind person here, but I can't find
the original):

;; let's start an erlang node just for distel
(setq inferior-erlang-machine-options '("-sname" "emacs"))
(save-window-excursion
  (erlang-shell)
)

The problem is that after starting, there is no *erlang* buffer... Of course,
running the command by hand works fine. I have a feeling that it used to work,
but haven't been needing this lately.

Anyone has a clue as for what is wrong?

regards,
Vlad
