Ticket #663 (closed task: fixed)
Add GUI error dialog box on Linux / OS X

On Windows, debug_warn etc pops up a dialog box. On Linux / OS X we just print to stdout and expect the user to respond via stdin, which is no good if they're fullscreen or if they launched from a menu.
Possibly we could use an external tool like xmessage to do the fiddly business of displaying a dialog box with minimal dependencies.
