is this a bug?

node1> self().
node1> global:register_name(shell1, self()).
node1> global:whereis_name(shell1) == pid(0, 41, 0).

node2> global:whereis_name(shell1) == pid(3822, 41, 0).

comparison is true when pid is local but false when remote

tested with
R9B-1 and P9C (July 28) on FreeBSD/x86
R9B-1 on Linux/x86 and Linux/HPPA
