Bug Description

Even if xtrabackup exit with error code, innobackupex script output "completed OK!".

xtrabackup: Stopping log copying thread..
xtrabackup: Error: log_copying_thread failed.
100301 15:43:52 innobackupex-1.5.1: completed OK!

That is because xtrabackup is executed from fork child process and the parent process don't know the exit code of the child process.
