> couch:start/0 ignores the result of application:start/1, masking any errors that happen
during startup. e.g. I didn't have Erlang's os_mon modules (from Ubuntu's erlang-os-mon package)
installed which caused current couchdb trunk to silently fail to start. The following trivial
patch makes it fail immediately:
> diff --git a/src/couchdb/couch.erl b/src/couchdb/couch.erl
> index 956e948..365416e 100644
> --- a/src/couchdb/couch.erl
> +++ b/src/couchdb/couch.erl
> @@ -15,7 +15,8 @@
>  -compile(export_all).
>  
>  start() ->
> -    application:start(couch).
> +    ok = application:start(couch),
> +    ok.
>  
>  stop() ->
>      application:stop(couch).
