Hi All,  

Having a strange one with some lager logging, and hopping someone might have seen it before…  In the last couple of days I've spotted a few crashes in my logs that I've not seen before.  In my console log, I get:

<snip>

with a corresponding crash report in the crash log:

The lager activity is, I think, due to one of my gen_servers crashing, but I've never seen lager exhibit this behaviour before.  This is lager v1.2.1.  Anyone seen this behaviour before?  Any pointers as to how to track down the root cause?

Cheers,

Steve
