A filter has been created for the validateStandard seems to eat the abort event.
The UCM filter value ABORT (-1) that is given during the validate standard event does not abort - but instead behaves as CONTINUE
The logic is: during a checkin, if the binder contains value x, return from the filter with an ABORT to the service. Instead of throwing a service exception, the ABORT return value simple skips the binder validation and continues with the checkin.

It is expected that if ABORT is used that it behaves as ABORT not as CONTINUE

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Install TestAbortFilter test component which tests this behavior
2. Checkin a file when Abort has a value of -1
3. See that ABORT behaves as CONTINUE

The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users cannot use the ABORT functionality as expected
