Unreadably long message box when failing to read a file in a new project

#What steps will reproduce the problem?
- Add a lot of files that will trigger a "warning: LF will be replaced by CRLF"
- Make one file unreadable, for example by having it being in use by Visual Studio, or changing the file permissions
- Try to commit
#What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I would expect to either get the warnings separately from the error, or to at least have the long list in a scroll box that allows you to scroll to the error.
In stead you get a message box that contains all the "warning: LF will be replaced by CRLF" messages, with the actual error message all the way at the end, which is not readable because it is way off screen.
The only way to make it readable is to drag the message box to the top of the screen and hold the 'up' cursor key for a few minutes until the bottom of the message box comes in view. Any movement of the mouse cursor during this process can reset progress.
