Paul Eggleton - Feb. 23, 2012, 5:38 p.m.
Fixes a regression introduced in BitBake rev
c9f58ef6b897d3fa5b0d23734b5f2cb3dabb057a which prevents errors during
parsing from being fully reported because BitBake shuts down before it
can print them. Move the error printing to before the shutdown in order
to fix it.

Also remove a couple of superfluous calls to sys.exit() since these
will never be called (as self.shutdown(clean=False) does this itself).
