ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
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.

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

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Install TestAbortFilter test component which tests this behavior

3. See that ABORT behaves as CONTINUE

BUSINESS IMPACT

Due to this issue, users cannot use the ABORT functionality as expected
