Hello,
without further info a debug is rather difficult.
But let's try to at least start analysis of the problem:

Absolutely not: this would hit the very foundation of Erlang, process referential transparency. When a process is started is a brand new, clean entity (indeed, default process heap space is always the same size!).

>   - How can I make Bob to survive a connection loss?

Look above: it SHOULD survive.

Can you please start SASL (application:start(sasl) from the shell) and see if shell log puts some further information?

Vincenzo
