[erlang-questions] ordering guarantees when linking or monitoring processes

Say I have a process P that is linked to a process Q and traps exits. Q 
sends message M to P and then dies. Is P guaranteed to receive M before 
the 'EXIT' message?

What happens if, instead of linking, P monitors Q? Is P guaranteed to 
receive M before the 'DOWN' message?
