Since fixing third party plugins is impossible, the platform must step in. Two suggestions.

Firstly, as an aide to better code: An API such as MessageDialog.openErrorOnce(...) to ensure that a message only irritates once. This would save me and other programmers having to maintain their own have-I-reported-this-already logic.
