Follow-up Comment #1, bug #13200 (project gv):

I have the same problem and found a simple
workaround (which might also help to track the
problem down). In the example above, the problem
only occurs if the file was changed. Therefore, if
I do:

pdflatex blah.tex; sleep 1; touch blah.pdf

things get much better. When gv loads the file the
second time, it displays it (and I can just once
lower the window with the error messages such that
it is out of the way --- at least with my fvwm2

However, this only helps if I add something to
blah.tex. If I remove something, I have to touch
blah.pdf twice, such that the workaround is:

pdflatex blah.tex; sleep 1; touch blah.pdf; sleep 1; touch blah.pdf

Well, this is not beautiful, but better than
dismissing the error message all the time.
