Allow tar exit code 1

Version 1.4


As of tar 1.16, if a file is being changed as it's being included into a tar.gz file, tar will return exit code 1. DA previously only accepted error code 0 as valid. This change will allow the exit code of 1 to be valid and to not stop the backup process. The usual causes of this error could be things such as incoming, or deleting email as the backup is being created, or changing files mid-backup.
