One thing you can try is to temporarily change the "WarningAction" setting
in the FrontEnd-Option MessageOptions:

wact = "WarningAction" /. Options[$FrontEnd, MessageOptions][[1,2]];
SetOptions[$FrontEnd, MessageOptions -> {"WarningAction" -> {}}];
SetOptions[$FrontEnd, MessageOptions -> {"WarningAction" -> wact}];

unfortunatly I don't know of any way to really undo this setting. The best I
have found is to store the original value of the "WarningAction" of
MessageOptions and reset it to what it was as shown above. But this leaves
it explicitly set, that is it is marked as set in the option inspector,
even when it just has the default value. Does anyone know how to do this
