Misleading error message when adding a duplicate magnet transfer

Description (last modified by charles)

When a magnet link is added to the transfer list for the second time, by clicking on it in Safari, an error message is shown. However, the error message, reproduced below, is misleading as it leads users to believe something is wrong with the magnet link, Transmission or their networking, when in fact it is awaiting download already.

Reproducible in: v 1.80b3, nightly 9855

Solution: Use a different message - still not suggesting that the user made a boo-boo when s/he might just have been forgetful. E.g. "The torrent added is already in the transfer list."

The message: There was an error when adding the magnet link "magnet:?xt=urn:btih:2429a363855e55aa3feb5fb52bda20c2f2c9f07c&tr=http%3A%2F%2Ftracker.publicbt.com%2Fannounce". The transfer will not occur.
