In the recent feature about group hierarchy, the error message doesn't explain that loops in group hierarchy cannot be created.

I think the error message could explain why that action cannot be done, as some of the error messages do: "That action can't be done... Reason is that..."
This task depends upon

I have a patch for this. Not much to say about it, it simply implements the proposal. I've used this myself for a year, so the patch includes the translation relevant for me. If that's not wanted, it should be trivial to remove that part.
