[erlang-questions] internal error in v3_life

There is no explicit calls to any function in the  'v3_life' module.
Its functions are only called via apply. This means that reltool may
have problems to determine that the module is used or not.

But as the default setting of module inclusion ('mod_cond' set to
'all') in reltool also includes all modules listed in the app file
there should be no problem.

I suspect that you have set 'mod_cond' to 'derived'. If that is the
case, reltool would not include the module.
