Ok, this patch should fix this.  Instead of "echo abort" another more
meaningful message could be used.  I checked the other scripts which
redirect stderr and they should be fine.  In the tests I found
redirecting stderr, which probably fail which GIT_TRACE.

git-cvsserver.perl:2138 has 2>&1 but uses an regexp to match for the
content, so the trace message should not make a problem.  Can someone
using git-cvsserver confirm this?  Perhaps this should be changed to
2>/dev/null anyway.
