Sometimes my app doesn't start up correctly due to gen_server timeout issues. I suspect that this can happen because all of the code server stuff blocks the whole VM (in pre-R16 anyway).

15:30:16.494 [error] CRASH REPORT Process <0.97.0> with 0 neighbours crashed with reason: {timeout,{gen_server,call,[mimetypes,{load,default,[{<<"less">>,<<"text/css">>}]}]}}
15:30:16.497 [info] Application lcmdr_server exited with reason: {timeout,{gen_server,call,[mimetypes,{load,default,[{<<"less">>,<<"text/css">>}]}]}}

Some possible workarounds:

  • Allow custom mime types to be added during application start time, e.g. in the application environment. (preferable for me)
  • Increase the gen_server call timeouts from the default 5 seconds to something much bigger

@etrepum did the patch in #8 help with this?

Looks like that patch is sufficient
