That's right, that is something I need to fix but I'm not sure it is
possible. However, you can modify the GConf key
/apps/gnomemeeting/general/user_interface/show_popup and set it to
FALSE. The option didn't disappear, it just disappeared from the
preferences window.

Well, that is a bit advanced. The problem with that kind of features is
that it is very complex to implement, and few users (believe me) will
use it.
