the fact that huge output will take ages to render (and sometime fails
completley) is the reason why you see this box. If you would render it
directly, it would take just as long, but you wouldn't have the choice
to not see it. Since I have crashed older versions often just by
forgetting an ; I think the new behavior is a huge improvement.

If you want to reuse large output I would never do that via copy and
paste from notebook to notebook, but rather use Put and Get to write the
output to an extra file so you would never have to look at that large
output and never have to wait for the FE to render that junk.

...and no, I don't know whether you can change the settings and I
wouldn't recommend to do that even if it was possible...

hth,
