 I have a 6.10 upgrade from 6.06 on a laptop and crypto:start() works
 here also.

$ uname -a
Linux delora 2.6.17-10-386 #2 Fri Oct 13 18:41:40 UTC 2006 i686 GNU/Linux
$ erl -name fu
Eshell V5.5.1  (abort with ^G)
()1> application:start(sasl).
ok
=PROGRESS REPORT==== 5-Nov-2006::17:07:00 ===

     blah blah blah ...

=PROGRESS REPORT==== 5-Nov-2006::17:07:00 ===
         application: sasl
          started_at: ''


()2> crypto:start().

=PROGRESS REPORT==== 5-Nov-2006::17:07:05 ===
          supervisor: {local,crypto_sup}
             started: [{pid,<0.56.0>},
                       {name,crypto_server},
                       {mfa,{crypto_server,start_link,[]}},
                       {restart_type,permanent},
                       {shutdown,2000},
                       {child_type,worker}]

=PROGRESS REPORT==== 5-Nov-2006::17:07:05 ===
         application: crypto
          started_at: ''
ok
()3> 


Note that crypto:start() gives 'ok' even without starting sasl first.
