ui: flush stderr after printing a non-chained exception for Windows

There were consistent test failures in test-bad-extension.t, because Windows
buffers stderr when redirected to a file (per the comment in ui.write_err()).
That resulted in failures like this:

   show traceback for ImportError of hgext.name if debug is set
   (note that --debug option isn't applied yet when loading extensions)

Instead of inserting another flush immediately after the print, to go along with
the one recently added prior to the print (see 3ff4b07412ad), funnel the output
through ui.write_err().  The flush prior to printing the traceback only mentions
that stdout needs to be flushed, and only stderr needs to be flushed after
printing the traceback.  ui.write_err() does both for us without needing to
redocument the quirky Windows behavior.  It will also clear any progress bar.
