[erlang-questions] Distributed apps when application terminates

I have a release built around a distributed application.

If I spin two nodes up, things are configured properly such that if I attach and q() out of the node the application is actively running on, failover occurs, the application starts up on the other node.

What I'm finding is that in the same situation, if I kill the top level supervisor (either by directly sending it an exit message, or having a child fail enough times to pass the max restart threshold), I _don't_ fail over. I do, however, receive a node down message on the other node. I'm wondering if this is intentional, a bug, or if I'm doing something wrong.
