I changed it to use stderr only if there was an error.  In any case,
it doesn't seem right to me that drdr considers all stderr output to
be broken.  It's true that in most cases it is, but the tests are
obviously not part of it.  So IMO it would have been better to add a
way to say that for some file any stderr output should be ignored, and
only the exit code should matter.
