If git-tag crashes before actually creating the new tag, then "git tag
-d", passed to test_when_finished(), will error out too, which is
probably undesirable since "cleanup code" isn't expected to error out.
You could fix it this way:

    test_when_finished "git tag -d branch-and-tag-name || :" &&
    git tag branch-and-tag-name &&

or, even better, just swap the two lines:

    git tag branch-and-tag-name &&
    test_when_finished "git tag -d branch-and-tag-name" &&

However, do you even need to clean up the tag? Are there tests
following this one which expect a certain set of tags and fail if this
new one is present? If not, a simpler approach might be just to leave
the tag alone (and the branch too if that doesn't need to be cleaned
up).
