Hi Serge,

Thank you for the tip, but I don't think it's that. We are using
R12B-4 and this problem only happens when starting the Erlang runtime
from within Java, where I send the code:get_path() request right away.

For the time being I will just try to wait until there is a process
registered as "code_server", but I don't like that solution. The ideal
way would be to have some kind of notification mechanism (which could
be used for other things, too).

best regards,
Vlad
