How to tell epmd to release a name rigsitered but not valid any more?

Hi,

It is noticed that sometime when an erlang app crashes the empd daemon
still hold the node name, then the crashed app cannot restart with the
same name. Though kill epmd solves this problem, it is not a good
practice when many erlang apps runs on the same server.

epmd seems only has epmd -names to list all registered nodes, is there
a way to unregister a name from epmd?

Thanks.
