No, that doesn't fix it. And I'd be surprised if it did since
io:format, in the end, just sends messages to the group leader and
waits for a {io_reply, ...} message back.

As far as I understood, the real problem is that there is not a proper
way of waiting for the io system to flush the output before stopping

most straightforward one waiting for a period of time before exiting.
The rest are just doing fancy stuff hoping to interact with the

If that's true, I'll just live with it for now. But I'd like to know
