[erlang-questions] Dialyzer problem on OSX 10.6 (Erlang R13B02-1)

Hi Kostis,

This is what all I get:
$ dialyzer --build_plt -r /usr/local/Cellar/erlang/R13B02-1/lib/erlang/ 
lib/erts-5.7.3/ebin/ /usr/local/Cellar/erlang/R13B02-1/lib/erlang/lib/ 
kernel-2.13.3/ebin/ /usr/local/Cellar/erlang/R13B02-1/lib/erlang/lib/ 
stdlib-1.16.3/ebin/
   Creating PLT /Users/lestat/.dialyzer_plt ...

I will try to rebuild erlang with disabling hipe to see if that helps.

I am happy to run some tests/traces you would like to see the results  
of to help.

Regards,
	Tamas
