Error notifications when Phonon cannot load backend

Phonon currently uses KMessageBox to show an error message if loading
a backend fails for some reason ( see
kdelibs/phonon/platform_kde/kdepluginfactory.cpp:126 ).  The problem
is that KNotify calls this several times on startup and the user is
bombarded with 10 or 20 message dialogs.  Like many other user-visible
error messages in kdelibs, I think it is overly technical to be
throwing directly at some users.

Is there a less intrusive way to file messages so that people can find
out why their sound isn't working without being otherwise interrupted?
