Umm, if that patch fixes it (removing the TIOCSCTTY) then it seems to
me that the erlang-based service will instead exit when the user who
installed the server logs out. Evidently the services in erlang are
not properly disassociating themselves from the terminal and this
patch just makes it more obvious...

Have a nice day,
