  It would probably be easier simpler and quicker to find the messagebox
call in the insight source (most of which is just tcl/tk scripting after
all) and comment it out.

  Actually it should probably be properly removed and sent upstream as a
patch.  Opening a fresh window per log message is just plain wrong on pretty
much any host or target I can imagine.  One window with debug messages
scrolling up, yes; one window, that blocks execution until it is clicked
away, maybe; one window, that simply overwrites it's message with each new
debug message as it arrives, ok; but opening window after window after
window without limit?

  Debug messages just don't belong in dialog boxes.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
