Thanks, that was it.  I was trying some code in the "Concurrent Programming
in Erlang" pdf
listed on http://www.erlang.org/download.html.

The sample module (on page 77) is called "timer", which apparent rubs
shoulders with "timer" in the stdlib.  I changed the module name to
"mytimer" and the problem has gone away

You are probably just trying to use a module name that is already
> being used for some important system module (lists.erl is an old
> favourite). Be glad that it did not load your version instead.
