I think we should remove this again. There are simply too many warnings, as a 
result I can't see the other, more useful warnings anymore, they are all in 
the middle of those virtual-overload warnings.
Additionally, most of the warnings are false positives (I checked a few in 
KMail, and the ones I checked were all false, except one).
I doesn't help that the warnings are shown multiple times for the same thing 
when the headers are included in more than one place.
