This could be the reason. Working with ErlIDE, I got many bug reports about
the connection between Java and Erlang not working on OSX. I think almost
all of them were caused by this mismatch between how Java and Erlang look up
hosts by name. We had to use long names for the Erlang nodes.

This doesn't really answer why it did work the first time. Like Raimo said,
maybe the connection is retried several times. The connection can be closed
for several reasons, for example if data that can't be decoded is received.
Hard to tell without any additional info.
