Fix FileIn cmds losing synch if both ends send cancel messages (RHBZ#576879).

During a FileIn command (eg. upload, tar-in) if both sides
experience errors, then both sides could send cancel messages,
the result being lost synchronization.

The reason for the lost synch was because the daemon was ignoring
this case and sending an error message back which the library side
(which had cancelled) was not expecting.

Fix this by checking in the daemon for the case where the library
also cancels during daemon cancellation, and not sending an error

This also includes an enhanced regression test which checks for this
