last time someone asked about this problem on irc it was a result of some
distel documentation somewhere saying to put something similar to this in
your .emacs:

;; A number of the erlang-extended-mode key bindings are useful in the shell
(defconst distel-shell-keys
  '(("C-M-i"   erl-complete)
    ("M-?"      erl-complete)
    ("M-."      erl-find-source-under-point)
    ("M-,"      erl-find-source-unwind) 
    ("M-*"      erl-find-source-unwind) 
  "Additional keys to bind when in Erlang shell.")

(add-hook 'erlang-shell-mode-hook
	  (lambda ()
	    ;; add some Distel bindings to the Erlang shell
	    (dolist (spec distel-shell-keys)
	      (define-key erlang-shell-mode-map (car spec) (cadr spec)))))

if you recently tried to install distel try commenting out this section and
seeing if it helps...
