your code tries to reuse/re-register test. this is what the manual says 
(look for Failure):

''register(Name, P)

Associates the name Name with the port or pid P. Name, which must be an 
atom, can be used instead of a port or pid in the send operator (Name ! 

Returns true.

Failure: badarg if P is not an active port or process, if P is on 
another node, if Name is already in use, if the port or process is 
already registered (already has a name), if Name is not an atom, or if 
Name is the atom undefined.''

in your code test is already in use. do a
before registering. note that it is an error if Name is not the name of 
a process.
