This is intentional, although it might be considered counter-intuitive. Running subsequent analyses in the GUI is equivalent to using command-line option `-then`, which exhibits the same behavior as you described. This behavior makes more sense when running different plug-ins (e.g. derived Value plug-ins such as Nonterm), each of them emitting different messages. It also makes sense for other plug-ins such as WP, which are modular, and therefore likely to be executed several times in sequence. For a whole-program analysis such as Value, this makes little sense. The recommended approach when using Value is to parse and parameterize it using the command-line, and then use the GUI mainly to inspect results (falling back to the command-line for further parameterization).

Maybe you should add a button "Clear messages"? Even better would be to check whether there is such a record and do not add a duplicate. It is not always possible to achieve the desired at a time. See

The logging mechanism in the GUI is due to be revamped in a future release and the new behavior will likely prevent this situation from happening.
