Ignas, the Expect script that I put in my original/long message to this
list contains a magic workaround. In the case where run_erl (on box A)
is started via SSH from a remote box (call it box B).
If box B uses "ssh -t" to force the allocation of a pseudo-tty on box A
before executing "run_erl", then the problem goes away because the VM
can use the new shell.
If box B uses the ssh defaults, which on (all/most??) platforms does not
force allocation a pty, the problem exists.
Using 'screen' to force allocation of a pty is another hack. Using
"script" would be the same kind of hack. I agree, there's all a bit
