Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-863) be quiet about dropping invalid references

be quiet about dropping invalid references

                 Key: COUCHDB-863
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Database Core
    Affects Versions: 1.0.1
            Reporter: Randall Leeds
            Priority: Trivial

couch_ref_counter:drop will complain, dying with noproc, if the reference counter does not
exist. Since dropping a reference to a non-existent process isn't exactly an error I think
we should squelch this one. I hate log noise and I've noticed this pop up in the logs a bunch,
especially running the test suite. Extra noise doesn't make debugging easier and it could
confuse people trying to solve real problems.

Trivial, trivial patch unless I'm missing something really silly. I'll save everyone the extra
emails from JIRA and just paste it here.
