In all these cases there is some error more important than the result
of svn_repos_abort_report(). So, perhaps just do:

   svn_error_clear(svn_repos_abort_report(rbaton));

It's not as if the user is going to be able to do a darned thing about
a transaction that didn't get cleaned up from alllll the way across
the network. -)
