[composer] Prevent hang on trying to export compositions and atlases to files which can't be overwritten, and warn user instead (fix #9283) (fix #10016). Fix mouse cursor getting stuck after failed atlas exports.

If this bugreports concerns the Atlas part of QGIS 2.x, please report the bug in the main QGIS application.
If this concerns the Atlas plugin for QGIS 1.8, please note that it is now deprecated as the feature has been ported to core. It is not maintained any longer.
It is advised to update your QGIS version to benefit from all the improvements incorporated, especially concerning the composer and the Atlas feature.

I'm expecting this report - it concerns the inbuilt feature, but I'm unable to reopen this ticket or change its category to Map Composer. Vincent, are you able to do this?

Hello Nyall,

I added you as developper and manager of this plugin, and reopened the bug. I can only "move" it to the other projects belonging to me on this platform, and not the QGIS project itself. Maybe you will be able to do so now that I added you as a member.
