  I like printing the warnings too. Gnash should still attempt to keep
going regardless, but letting users know there are bugs in their code is
always a good thing.

  One of these days we'll add support for debugging Flash movies, and at
that point users might want to have a graphical warning message pop up.

  Since the warnings aren't printed unless running Gnash with "-v", I
don't think there is a problem. Also, all the warnings should get
written to the log file (if enabled), where you can see them later
regardless of whether they were displayed on the screen.

  With framebuffer based devices, I think it's highly likely they'll be
only running one Flash movie all the time, so you wouldn't be getting
any warnings.
