Hi Micheal,
what you're asking would be best implemented as a 'view logs'
GTK window. Benjamin has been looking at it some time ago but
never handled to complete the project due to other priorities 
on the list.

Nonetheless Ben added support for popping up windows and it
should already work for well-defined malfunctioning (media decoding
most noticeably).

Now, adding more cases for a popup could help here, but it must
be very carefully analized what's worth notifying or the risk
is to get way TOO much notifications (and sometimes for nothing as
some SWF application keep working just with minor disturbances
for some unimplemented things).

Probably a good candidate would be 'ABC' code at this time (movies
requiring the virtual machine version 2).

Willing to provide a patch ?
