bindbackend: Return false if domain_id is negative
It should return false, because it has effectively failed.
Returning true can cause several problems later on as
various functions assume they have valid file handle pointer
and valid domain ID to look up, which they don't.
bindbackend: Move throw to correct place in startTransaction
The cleanup code wasn't being executed due to premature throw
