I use an external hard drive to store most of my music. This hard disk isn't set to automount, so if I open Audacious and haven't mounted the drive I get 10 errors instantly that stop me from doing anything until I have mashed space 10 times (and if you hit 11 you open 10 more errors as it tries to load 10 more songs it can't find).

A few solutions I could think of are to compile all subsequent errors into a single dialog like what Foobar2000 does. If that isn't possible even an option to disable errors altogether would work well for me, I could not find anything like this in settings. Or perhaps being able to configure the amount of songs it will skip before stopping, like 3 instead of 10, which would just make the issue more manageable

We have some logic to handle this in the legacy GTK interface. It just needs to be ported to Qt.
