[erlang-questions] erl -name foo and hostname

I haven't responded earlier, because I am currently struggling with my
Ubuntu 16.04 system at home, which I only installed some days ago. This
system is a default fresh desktop setup, without any changes so far. It was
quite a surprise, that invoking erl with "-name" results in a crash with a
dump file being created. I haven't seen such a behaviour for quite some
time now.

Well, this "new" problem currently keeps me distracted from Yours.


Regards,
Boris
