This is arguable. I would say that it *is* user-visible, it's just much
*less* user-visible than having it shown in a dialogue. If it is added
as a non-translatable message to stderr now, it can be made a dialogue
in GNOME 2.7. I agree it should go in and be translatable eventually,
but I don't think it's urgent.

Yes, we should prevent such situations. Can we wait until 2.7 to prevent
such situations? I suspect the answer is yes. It is late in the string
freeze and this is far from being a critical bug. If it was so
important, it should have been fixed sooner (i.e. before the freeze).
