What I meant by "G_done_msg () is not living up to it's intended use" is
that it should be re-implemented as a void function. Allowing people to
add text to the string is causing too much confusion.
It would be much easier to re-declare as 'G_done_msg (void)' and append
it to modules that don't already use it to indicate completion. IMO, it
should either be used everywhere or gotten rid of.
