I second this recommendation. If your app uses 'global', then a very
short-lived administrative task/control script like this can cause the
global service's replication protocol to generate error messages that
are harmless but look scary(*). Ditto for other applications that
subscribe to the net_kernel's event notifications to react when remote
nodes connect & disconnect.
