Hi,

I upgraded Erlang on one of our Linux servers to R10B-4, and started 
getting this error at startup.  This problem wasn't observed before the 
upgrade.

epmd seems to be running ok:
~>ps -aux | grep epmd
serge    26268  0.0  0.0  1932  660 ?        S    17:16   0:00 
/home/serge/erl/erts-5.4.5/bin/epmd -daemon

Netstat (netstat -a | grep 35269) doesn't show port 35269 being taken.

I ran strace on this machine and on another machine that doesn't exhibit 
  this error, and saved the output to out_bad.txt and out_good.txt 
respectively (cutting everything before and after the problem spot):

strace erl -sname a 2> out_bad.txt

Could anyone suggest the cause of this error?

Thanks.

Serge
