For me (I am using a mixed Erlang+Java environment) the problem was (and
still is) that different tools (Erlang and Java, in this case) resolve
names slightly differently, causing problems. I am solving this by simply
trying to start with different arguments and see which one works. It's not
nice, but I couldn't find any other way that would work for everybody.

Did you try to run epmd with the debug flag and check what exactly is sent
over the wire?
