Change pool module to attempt to attach to nodes that are already running

The pool module prints out an error message and takes no further action for
nodes that are already running. I think the behavior should be changed such
that if the return from slave:start/3 is {already_running, Node} then an
attempt to attach to the node is still made. This makes sense because the
node has been specified by the user in the .hosts.erlang file indicating a
wish for the node to be part of the pool and a manual attach can be
successfully made after the pool is started.

git fetch git:// pool_connect_to_running_nodes
