Error messages meant for users are sent as message packets.

LOG_ERROR is *never* meant for users, it is for developers.


Messages and text in general which are shown in the GUI should be
translated by using the "_()" macro. In addition freelog(LOG_NORMAL,
...) messages should be translated. The other loglevels (LOG_FATAL,
LOG_ERROR, LOG_VERBOSE, LOG_DEBUG) should NOT be translated.

If a user tries to load an unavailable soundset, it is a bug in the
selections dialog, and a developer problem!

Again, a developer problem.  No user remediation is possible.
