Missing Private Key Locks Site Manager

When scrolling through sites on the site manager, if you select a site that uses keys to authenticate, and those key files are missing, a pop up appears saying:
title: "Could not load key file" body: "The file '[path to key]' could not be loaded or does not contain a private key.
However, when you attempt to select another site from the list, the pop up still appears, and does not allow you to use the site manager without closing and reopening the window.
While the bug could be fixed by simply stopping the pop-up from appearing again after you select another site, I would like to propose that the key not found be moved into the site manager itself, instead of a popup, perhaps as a colored warning below the key file selector. This would have the benefit of not stopping a user from scrolling down through the list and getting pop-ups for sites he is not interested in, only getting the alert within the window when he stops on a site.
note: this also happens on the linux versions of filezilla.
