Not really. We are probably talking about release builds primarily,
where the only such message is the system error (as the assertions
aren't compiled in, anyway). If such an error occurs, the message
is lost - but an error code is returned to the API function that
caused the error. This error code should then translate to a Python
exception (e.g. an ImportError if the dialog tried to say that
a DLL could not be loaded). Whether or not that exception then also
gets lost depends on the application.
