Dear all,
I have an application in Erlang which has as many as 200 processes running
simultaneously.
All the 200 process will access a process (Module name -file_writer) which
write log to a file. Sometimes, the following error is occured.

=ERROR REPORT==== 22-Mar-2007::15:45:16 ===
** Generic server file_writer terminating
** Last message in was {'$gen_cast',{write_log,
                                        "22/3/2007",
                                        "15:45:16",
                                        "Empty",
                                        "Process_63",
                                        "Process 63 log off"}}
** When Server state == [<0.45.0>,<0.44.0>]
** Reason for termination ==
** {badarg,[{io,put_chars,[<0.45.0>,"22/3/2007"]},
            {io,o_request,2},
            {file_writer,handle_cast,2},
            {gen_server,handle_msg,6},
            {proc_lib,init_p,5}]}

Please help me in sorting out this problem.
