Why shouldn't it print a warning ?
We had a discussion concerning this warning on the dev list, but I 
currently don't have the time to go looking for it.

Well, I think that the tcl-side correction is much less invasive and 
corrects a real problem with gis.m, i.e. that the whole gui crashes just 
because it encounters this warning. As we don't know if there might be 
other such warnings which might cause the same problem, I prefer fixing 
gis.m, as the discussion concerning whether the warning should be 
printed or not seems more fundamental to me.

But thanks for all your help !
