Hi Ulrich,

The messages comes from Cbc, and not eplex. We don't have any good 
control over what messages the external solver may generate. In the case 
of Cbc/Clp, eplex already specify that it wants the lowest level above 
no output (i.e. least amount) of messages from the solvers.

If you really want to get rid of them, you can supress the printing of 
warning messages by supressing the warning_channel from the solver (this 
is described in the `External Solver Output and Log' section of the 
Constraints Library manual). However, this is *not* recommended, as you 
probably want to see `real' warning messages from the solver.


Cheers,

Kish
