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

Sorry, perhaps I wasn't clear. The solution IS to check out an older
version of the code since the trunk is broken. i.e. the trunk exhibits
the symptoms above, the revision on july 1 doesn't.

I don't know why this is tho :-)

[kind of unrelated, but by not reply-munging, this thread is probably
losing lots of valuable conversation since the majority of people hit
reply instead of reply-all].
