#6080 closed enhancement (fixed)

honor return value of a User Job

Currently User Job exit values are read (in mythsystem.cpp) but ignored because jobqueue.cpp always returns "JOB_FINISHED" and the message "Successfully Completed." as soon as the User Job finishes.

This patch looks for a non-zero exit value from the User Job and then deals with them appropriately in the log and the status.
