[erlang-questions] erl -name doesn't work

Hi,

I'm running the latest release of Erlang (R11B-3) on Windows XP.  When I
run:

C:\WINDOWS\system32>"c:\Program Files\erl5.5.3\bin\erl.exe" -name foo

it exits immediately -- no shell, no error message of any sort.  However,
the following brings up a shell as expected:

C:\WINDOWS\system32>"c:\Program Files\erl5.5.3\bin\erl.exe" -sname foo
Eshell V5.5.3  (abort with ^G)
()1>

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?  Thanks.

Dave
