[Qt] Show more significant warning if we fall back to the default fee #9481
There are multiple reports (bitcoin.stackoverflow, etc.) from users sending (very-)low-fee-transactions with bitcoin-core.
If we have to use the fallback-ferrate, we should probably warn the user more significant (there is no "warning" right now.).
I think there are a few other things we could potentially do:
It's always going to be problem to get transactions out the door before we've had a chance to bootstrap fee estimation but would be nice to make it harder for users to shoot themselves in the foot. At least now the fallbackfee is such that their transactions will probably be confirmed within a day or two, but that might not remain true...
In any case, warning with the current behavior is a good first step.
