Hello, I discovered the cause of the badmatch: it was due to the debug 
macro I've defined.
Here it is:

-define(DBG(Str, Args),
   {Year, Month, Day} = date(),
   {Hour, Min, Sec} = time(),
   io:format("~2.10.0B/~2.10.0B/~4B ~2.10.0B:~2.10.0B:~2.10.0B [~p:~p] - 
", [Day, Month,
        Year, Hour, Min, Sec, ?MODULE, ?LINE]), io:format(Str, Args)).

Can someone explain me what I did wrong here? Why should I obtain a 
badmatch on {Hour, Min, Sec} = time() ?

Thank you,
