[erlang-questions] SCTP active == true bug?

Yes, this is a "known" issue.  The code included in R11B-4 doesn't 
support {active, true} and {active, once} modes.  We have a version of 
the driver that does support these features, but didn't have time to 
merge it with R11B-4.  We'll try to do that some time after R11B-5 comes 
out.
