(ITS#5387) slapcat ignores errors while writing output (no space left on device, etc)

When slapcat is writing it's output to disk, it ignores any errors (with slapcat
-l output_file or slapcat > output_file). If an error is encountered, such as
"No space left on device", slapcat then exits normally with a return code of 0.
This seems pretty dangerous to me - if you back up your database with slapcat,
but don't get an error on failure, it could easily lead to data loss.
Please find at the address below a patch to stop on such errors. It may require
some cleaning up - apologies if so.
