Never had problem with this before but this is the first time I've
used a Mac.  Here's the info:

>From console A ...

$ erl -sname foo -setcookie c

>From console B ...

$ erl -name bar -setcookie c

>From console C ...

$  /usr/local/lib/erlang/erts-5.6.4/bin/epmd -names
epmd: up and running on port 4369 with data:
name bar at port 51292
name foo at port 51290

>From Console B ...

()1> net_adm:ping().
()2> net_adm:ping().
()3> net_adm:names().

Note that the pang is received after the cursor hangs for a few
seconds.  The cursor does not hang when I type
