Get Quotes Question

I am running GnuCash 2.4.11 on Mac OS X 10.8.4 with Finance::Quote 1.18. 

I find it a minor annoyance that when I click Get Quotes in the price editor, the process halts for missing symbols with a dialog box saying: "Unable to retrieve quotes for these items: […] Continue using only good ones?"

I find this dialog superfluous, and cannot imagine any reason to answer this with anything other than "Yes." 

I am wondering whether it would be possible for this process to run in its entirety and then report on any problems in summary afterwards. In other words, have it process all the symbols, and then say afterwards something along the lines of: "Process complete. Unable to update the following symbols: […]"

I am not sure whether this is a request that should be made to GnuCash Bugzilla or to the Finance::Quote developer, however.
