I just installed 3.00.03 and turned off the warnings in Biblio.pm
temporarily.  I'm now seeing a bunch of duplicate barcode warnings.  In
converting from DBText for Libraries we have a number of items without
barcodes since they were not for loan.  I generated barcodes for them,
but my generation algorithm didn't guarantee uniqueness.

My point is that these warnings are not benign. They hide the real
warnings, like duplicate barcodes.  I also added a \r to the beginning
of the error message around line 211 to neaten up the output.
