Hi!

If it uses native lookups we can assume that getaddrinfo is broken when it
is called from the detached node.
This narrows down the search for the cause of this issue to a more general
problem with getaddrinfo on os-x,
leading us to this thread:

You could try just adding nohup to the command that you're executing using
ssh. Although i have a hard
time seeing how this would work. An erlang node started with -detached
should ignore HUP signals (afaik).
