[Webtest] webtest.bat minor bug

I call webtest.bat like this from an ant build script:

   <target name="run-webtest" description="runs Canoo webtests">
        <exec executable="${webtest.runner}" dir="test/webtest/tests"
           <arg value="-buildfile" />
           <arg value="MainTestSuite.xml" />

The explicit 'failonerror' is there in order to make sure that the build is
registered as a failure if things go wrong. This works fine on our Linux
build machine, but when I run it on my Windows work station, it doesn't. The
problem is that webtest.bat ends with these rows:

set EXEC=%JAVA_CMD% %JAVA_OPTS% -cp "%RT_LIB%\ant-launcher.jar"
-Dant.library.dir="%RT_LIB%" org.apache.tools.ant.launch.Launcher -nouserlib
-lib "%CLOVER_LIB%" %*
echo %EXEC%


I guess that the exit code of "@endlocal" is always 0, meaning that even if
'java' returns a non-zero exit code, webtest.bat will always return 0,
telling Ant that everything is OK. I propose just removing the "@endlocal",
since, according to Microsoft "there is an implicit endlocal command at the
end of a batch file."

That's what I've done locally, at least. And when my tests break, I get
BUILD FAILED message, just like I want. :)
