Now a failure message like

rear mkrescue failed, check /root/rear.master/var/log/rear/rear-e205.log for details

is shown when it exits in any unintended way,
e.g. when it exits because [Ctrl]+[C] was pressed or
when it exits at an arbitrary command because of 'set -e'.
For the latter case cf.

That failure message is not show when it exits/aborts
intentionally via the Error function plus the USR1 trap
because in this case the Error function and the USR1 trap
show already appropriate messages.

It "just works" for me so that I "just merge" it now
because I like to get early feedback or bug reports
if something gets wrong because of that but I do not
expect real errors because in the end it is only about
an additional message.
