I'd suggest adding

#define EI_DEBUG

to your mod_erlang_event.h header and recompiling that module. Then
you'll get ridiculously verbose output from the erlang module but you'll
see ALL messages back and forth.

The other thing to check is that sofia can load the config file you're
serving it from disk, not from erlang.
