[erlang-questions] Emacs: Debugger buffer not showing program output

Hi!

I'm trying to learn both Emacs and erlang (newbie to both so please be
gentle). I installed Distel fine and managed to connect to an erlang
node. Was trying out debugging when I noticed something odd.

I start a debug session with C-c C-d i and set a breakpoint C-x SPC.
And when I run the function in the shell, the debug process list
window pops up. I type return on the correct process and a debugger
buffer pops up. As far as I understand it to work, it should show the
program in a read-only buffer: with the state of execution &
breakpoints, and with variables at the bottom of the window. However I
get a blank buffer: all the commands (n, SPC, q, h, etc.) seem to work
fine though. I'm not sure if it's because I misunderstood how it's
supposed to work, so here's a screenshot:

Shouldn't it look something like this:

(I'm using Aquamacs btw, not sure if that makes a difference).

It'd be great if somebody could help.

Thanks,
Vish
