Please find a possible minor issue in runtime_tools application starting

As said in the documentation, no parameter is defined in this application.
However,  when starting a node referring this application, not
documented parameter /ttb_autostart_module/ appears.

This is due to the following lines in ttb_autostart:init/1 function.

/init(no_args) ->
    case application:get_env(runtime_tools, ttb_autostart_module) of
        {ok, _} ->  ok;
        undefined -> application:set_env(runtime_tools,
ttb_autostart_module, ?DEF_AUTOSTART_MODULE)
    %%As the process is not needed any more, it will shut itself down
    {ok, no_args, 10000}./
