Inappropriate Domain Calculation Warnings

MathGroup: Here's an example of Solve with a user-specified Domain. It is accompanied by a Warning which is inappropriate for the specified Domain. In[1]:= Solve[(2^53 == 10^x), x, Element[x, Reals]] // N Solve::ifun: Inverse functions are being used by Solve, so some solutions may not be found; use Reduce for complete solution information. Out[1]= {{x -> 15.9546}} Given the Domain spec that x is a Real number, I would think this Solve::ifun: message would not propagate to printout -- i.e., that it would be suppressed. This is how I feel a new user would expect Mathematica 5.0 to work. Regards, Harold
