3.9 Errors and warnings

Tasks which are ran from the GUI can generate various error messages, warnings and information messages. These messages are written to the sas_log and may also pop up a dialog to alert the user.

Warning dialogs include a check-box which allow subsequent occurrences of the same warning to be ignored so that no further user interaction is needed. However, all occurrences are still written to the log. The warning is re-enabled next time the task is run.
