I am attempting to run release handler commands using -eval (or -run) 
and receive the following error. Running the commands in the erlang 
terminal work fine.

> $ erl -eval 'release_handler:which_releases()'
> Erlang R13B (erts-5.7.1) [source] [64-bit] [smp:2:2] [rq:2] 
> [async-threads:0] [hipe] [kernel-poll:false]
>
> Eshell V5.7.1  (abort with ^G)

> init terminating in do_boot ()

Running something like inets:start or application:which_applications 
works as expected:

> $ erl -eval 'inets:start()'
> Erlang R13B (erts-5.7.1) [source] [64-bit] [smp:2:2] [rq:2] 
> [async-threads:0] [hipe] [kernel-poll:false]
>
> Eshell V5.7.1  (abort with ^G)
> 1>

Any idea what might be causing this?


Thanks.
