Hi everybody,

While poking around in gen.erl, I found something that
looks like a bug: returning a self() in one case arm, while
the others return node()'s. I have attached (ack! spit!)
a brief look at where this occurs: two places, probably
a cut-and-paste error.

(Found in R8B0 and R7B1.)

The fix is to replace self() with node() :-)
