I will look at the code in more detail tomorrow, but maybe someone has
the answer already...

I am calling code:get_path() very early in the startup process and
with R12 it often happens that this call crashes with

My first inspection leads me to guess that the code server isn't
started properly and the badarg is because the name code_server isn't
registered yet.

I even added a code:module_info() call earlier, to let the code server
start up properly, but to no avail. I don't know if it's because I
should wait a little longer or there is another explanation.

The error doesn't happen all the time (actually, I can't reproduce it
myself), but I have many reports from different erlide users.

Could somebody please guide me from here?

best regards,
