Need for more-prominent error messages

I recently ran up against the 20-megabyte limit imposed by my hosting company.  However, I had to spend an hour or two trouble-shooting before I figured out why only parts of my CityDesk site were being uploaded.

After some frustration, I finally noticed a small error message that appeared in the "FTP Status" window.  The error message said, "Disk quota exceeded", or something similar.  However, the message didn't exactly jump out at me.

Shouldn't these types of errors be displayed more prominently?

Great idea. I'll look into seeing if there's a way we can single out the truly important FTP messages.

It'd be nice to be able to scroll back to see all the FTP messages -- not just the "important" ones!
