Sounds like your Eclipse environment isn't the same as the normal erl one.
Never used Eclipse, so I wouldn't know where to look.

It is sometimes easier to figure out what is wrong by starting an erl shell
and then start your app from there. You might get a better insight that way.
Did you get a crash dump? If yes, then you could see if there's anything
interesing in there via the CrashDumpViewer (available as part of the
webtool, try webtool:start() and go to the website it serves)).
