When we've seen this error message before, it's been because the 
machine's hostname *is* resolvable in the DNS, but does *not* actually 
point to the machine in question. Erlang starts epmd and attempts to 
connect to `hostname`, but since that's not the same machine, epmd is 
not running there.

Kenneth, does that sound like it could describe your problem? Is the 
machine really "xlquest"?

Also, I think we changed that error message in 2.4.1 - are you running 
an older version?

Cheers, Simon
