If I use the module I have included as an attachement and run the  
following code in R13B01,

db_dis:new(database, ).
db_dis:write(tom, london, database, ).
db_dis:write(stuart, london, database, ).
db_dis:match(tom, database, ).

=ERROR REPORT==== 24-Jun-2009::15:13:11 ===
'' got a corrupted external term from '' on  
distribution channel 5571
ATOM_CACHE_REF translations: 0='', 1=''

In R12B-5 if  run the same code I get my expected response of []

what am I missing.

thanks in advance
