configuration error

A message that has meaning only in context of where it is used, and it can mean virtually anything. If "configuration error" is the actual message displayed without additional data, it is really the programmer's error. Invalid input received by any program should trigger a message with a range of valid settings or an explanation of what is expected so the user has a clue about what to do next.
