Relx uses nodetools, and nodetools seems to want a cookie real bad to
avoid different apps communicating each other accidentally.
If the issue isn't related to cookies, it may be due to the app
In some cases, applications do not get proper dependency lists (which
app depends on which apps), or omit to include apps like 'stdlib' and
In such cases, what may happen is that when shutting down, the Erlang
node tears down 'kernel' or 'stdlib' before some other running
application. Then the node is stuck in that mode where it is technically
