the main server process, running on node "main", calls util:start().  
after it's been running a while, happily logging messages, i run the 
other program, with the "-run master debugctrl on".  this runs on
same machine, as node "debug".

but i have the same problem if i run erlang by hand:

    $ erl -sname debug -setcookie keebler 
    Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.3.6.3 [source] [hipe] [threads:0]

    Eshell V5.3.6.3  (abort with ^G)
    ()1> master:debugctrl( ["on"] ).
    ** exited: {noproc,{gen_server,call,[{global,util},{enable,debug},10000]}} **
    ()2>
