Messages that the user needs to see have to be a message box, yes. But
really if we are doing things right there shouldn't be any need for
such messages. In this specific case I'd suggest letting winecfg take
care of it, by not offering the ddraw dlls in the load order config,
and/or issuing a warning when they are set to native.
