It sounds precisely like you're using an older version. Where did you
get it? The latest and greatest is in the repository, not in a package.

The old behavior governing which facet boxes are initially open was
based on some analysis. There's an algorithm for making those choices
in the Java if you're interested. It's completely disabled in the
latest repository version.

I'm not clear on where the warning originates, but it's never given me
