I am afraid you can do nothing with the XV (excpet writing a patch for XV code yourself). Latest GIMP puts all warning messages in the single window, so it should be not too boring. Also you can use tiffcp utility to create copies of all your TIFFs. tiffcp copies only subset of the baseline tags, so all 'unknown' content will be stripped down (as well as part of 'known' content).
