Hum, this warning is being print if getDebugName() of the Irrlicht device returns something.

This is also the case with the Irrlicht package that comes with lucid:
apt-cache policy libirrlicht-dev
  Installed: 1.7+dfsg1-1
  Candidate: 1.7+dfsg1-1
  Version table:
 *** 1.7+dfsg1-1 0

Probably the debugging setting just enables the debug symbols but they should be stripped out anyway.
I will see if I can reproduce the behavior here and try if compiling irrlicht not in debug mode fixes it.
