Description John Eckersberg 2015-12-15 11:18:39 EST
Erlang aborts in dist_port_command with ERTS_ABORT_EXIT:

    if (size > (Uint) INT_MAX)
		 "Absurdly large distribution output data buffer "
		 "(%beu bytes) passed.\n",

However, ERTS_ABORT_EXIT inhibits erlang crash dump generation.  It would be better to exit with ERTS_DUMP_EXIT so a crash dump is generated, in order to help debug crashes from large messages.
