Description

Sometimes a base map is moved on my computer. This causes qgis to prompt me to look for the file to correct the missing link in the xml file. Unfortunately, qgis does not provide me any information regarding what file I should be looking for (shapefile name, postgis table, etc.). It would be useful if the name of the layer in the xml file could be shown to the user so they have an idea of what to look for. Even better, the original location could also be displayed.
