Because it's not an error... When a reference (I guess it always must be an
ID, then) is not found locally, Org will search for it in external known

The problem is you see hundreds of messages "Finding ID location...", and you
don't know which reference Org is trying to find...

When you have multiple tables, with multiple references, this is a nightmare
to find which was is wrong.

Just use `TBLNAME' instead of `tblname' for the referenced table (or the
inverse, if you apply the patch you sent me a couple of days ago), and you'll
understand that it's good to know what Org is searching for.

I don't like it that much either, but, here, it's the only way to see the
message before being flooded by the "Finding ID location..." messages.

Best regards,
