Indy is designed to throw exceptions when errors occur.  The message you are
seeing is a result of your own code's lack of exception handling when
calling List(), thus if List() errors it will throw an exception and your
code is allowing the exception to work its way up to the default handler
which then displays the message in a popup window.

Simply wrap the call to List() in a try...catch block.
