[erlang-questions] Name Issues

Hi guys,

Me again :-)

So, I'm having trouble setting the long name for a release.  It used to work fine, but now I'm getting  as my app name.  I'm starting it using:

rel/myapp/bin/myapp console -mnesia dir '"/Users/leesylvester/tmp/Mnesia.myapp.node1"' -name myapp

I know I can use net_kernel:start to set the name, but if I do this, I still can't connect to other nodes on the same host that started correctly.  How am I supposed to pass the name to the release when starting it?
