Sigh... there is a patch but it hasn't been sent to CTAN (and then on to TeX Live) for some reason (?). The maintainers may be working on other changes before updating.

The message is harmless. However, if it bothers you I can send you a patched version with instructions on how to install it. 

Good Luck,
