Thanks for the response.  I realise they are only warnings, but if
I can eliminate them with not too much difficulty I would like to.
First they are worrying to users and second they have the potential
to mess up scripts that rely on the output.  I am not too worried
by the loss of cycles however, given the normal frequency of use
the loss is trivial.

|These errors are usually just warnings and can safely be
