counsel--async-sentinel misses errors #394

I've been working on a counsel-zgrep that looks in the current directory since many things I have don't use git (e.g., the lisp directory of my emacs installation). I was getting very frustrated that some grep strings were working and some weren't, though I knew they matched some files, they just showed no results in ivy..

Following the example in the manual I was using counsel--async-command and I ultimately found the issue in counsel--async-sentinel. It misses any errors other than exit code 1 (and zgrep was exiting with 2).

I think counsel--async-sentinel should catch the other errors and include the exit code in the displayed error message or at least print it with (message) so I would have caught this much sooner.

It would also be nice if there was a way to specify a different sentinel for counsel--async-command.
