Fixed a small issue with gproc in the 'await' function when no timeout
is specified.

see branch 'fix-await-notimeout' in the repository

or the patch:

--- a/src/gproc.erl
+++ b/src/gproc.erl
@@ -312,7 +312,7 @@ request_wait({n,C,_} = Key, Timeout) when C==l; C==g ->
     WRef = call({await,Key,self()}, C),
         {gproc, WRef, registered, {_K, Pid, V}} ->

                no_timer -> ignore;
                _ -> erlang:cancel_timer(TRef)

I don't know of any guidelines for patch submission since this is not
OTP, so let me know if there is a better way I can provide patches now
or in the future.
