[erlang-questions] [erlang-bugs] Weird pg2 behavior

Has there been any progress on this?  This bug bit us again today. :-(

(A pid from a node on a machine that had been decommissioned and not
running any Erlang code for months now but still present on our
network was still lurking in one of our pg2 groups.  Yesterday we
finally repurposed this machine, removing it from our network, which
had the unexpected side effect of causing Pid ! Msg in some heavily
used code to start adding several seconds of delay due to the runtime
attempting to autoconnect to that long-dead node.)
