As Manpreet noted in today's i-team call, this issue is the result of a known
bug in Solaris 10:

It does not have any negative impact on the function being performed, but it is
a nuisance to the end user that launches the tool from the command line. People
running the Update Tool from a file manager and from the desktop will not see
these messages because a terminal window will not be present in those cases.
For the Update 1 release, we'll look into how we might be able to hide such
nuisance messages yet still allow useful remote x display messages and such
through to the terminal. i.e. it's not as simple as redirecting all terminal
output to a file or to /dev/nul.
In the meantime, we'll release note this issue for 2.0.
