These are harmless. It means that there are controls referenced in the code, 
like buttons, frames, sliders, etc., that are not actually in the currently 
used skin. So skin makers can remove pieces from the UI without the code 
crashing, because the control is missing. It creates a "dummy" control on the 
fly that is not visible but acts as a placeholder for the code.
