I agree on the principle, but I do not think a run-time warning is the
correct place for a lengthy explanation. This is especially true in this
particular case because the test around the warning is very wide, and will
lead to a lot of false alarms (the warning is printed but the capture works

For these reasons, I think the warning should be kept short, no more than a
80 characters line. Additional details, including a link to the bugtracker
entry, would find their place in device-specific notes in the documentation.
Unfortunately, I did not manage to find the place where these
device-specific notes reside.
