[erlang-questions] init:stop() not working?

Hi!

I have encountered situations where the beam process keeps running after
init:stop() has been called. I can't open a remote shell to that node, so
it looks that the node is in a zombie state. When I changed the shutdown
command to use erlang:halt() instead, then the vm process died as expected.

I don't have an easy way to reproduce this, it happens for some backends
started by erlide.

Has anyone an explanation for this? Is it something worth exploring?

best regards,
Vlad
