Yet another guy who thinks that Erlang developers reading this list are
superheros with amazing powers that allow them to magically guess the
version of Erlang/OTP he is using, the platform/OS, the details of his
application and of WebSocket's code, the patches to e.g. mochiweb he has
done, etc. and provide a verdict whether the problem he is experiencing
could be related to an equally underspecified question somebody posted
three months ago.
Sorry to disappoint you but the fact is that they are mere mortals. ;)
If you helped them a bit more by giving some more details and more
importantly by posting some code that exhibited the problem you are
experiencing, you chances of getting an answer would increase.
