Ours won't prevent normal operation either, but the end result will
be popup boxes separate from the main window that must have a button
pressed to make them go away, or else they will time out and go
away on their own.

It's a feature we already have in there and that's what we're
bringing up now on interface configuration.  We'll just tie them
into the transmit code as well so the path is checked every time.
Default transmit is every 30 minutes, so one window per 30 minutes
isn't too much of a hassle.  But it is a hassle.
