this is actually a feature, which checks the available UIs so that
--help will present the options list with the currently activale UIs
for --ui switch. The problem with GTK is that there is no way to
disable warnings, but if you can provide what is the exact output you
are seeing (cut&pasting the terminal output here) I can be less
