<cvs> has a failonerror attribute (since Ant 1.4) that should be used
for this.

MSG_WARN and MSG_ERROR are constants that get interpreted by the build
listeners, nothing more.  With Ant's default logger, you won't see any
output with a priority lower than MSG_WARN, when you use the -quiet
switch.  But there is nothing that divides WARN from ERROR.

How would a change like this solve your problem?
