[erlang-questions] Phased start - bug or misconception?

One problem there is that you’re starting the applications using application:start(App), which is equivalent to application:start(App, temporary).

If you use application:start(App, permanent), a failure in the application start sequence will cause the node to terminate. While this is not in every sense good, at least it leaves your system in a consistent state. :P
