[erlang-questions] Working with erl_boot_server

I've been poking all day at a problem I've run into with  
erl_boot_server. I've got a set of applications and a boot file which  
work fine when I use the boot file locally like so:

erl -sname foo -pz appfoo/ebin -pz appbar/ebin -boot appboot

When I try to use the boot file with erl_boot_server the node crashes  
with what looks like an inability to load the application module for  
one of the apps:

=CRASH REPORT==== 5-Aug-2008::16:21:19 ===
     pid: <0.79.0>
     registered_name: []
     exception exit: {bad_return,

I've made sure that the node running the boot server has the same code  
paths as the node I used to test the application locally. I'm pretty  
sure I've got something configured wrong with code paths or maybe app  
files but I haven't been able to figure it out yet.

Any suggestions on things to investigate (app files, pathing, etc) or  
pointers to docs on how to use erl_boot_server (besides Joel's blog  
posts) would be great.
