In my Emacs 24 (note that I'm quite sure it has nothing to do with the version
of Emacs), there are some questions I never see because they're immediately
overridden by other messages.
- when `vc-command-messages' is set to `t',
"Running svn --non-interactive diff Work.org...OK = 0"
hides the question "Resume clock (Organize work) (y or n)"
- "Scanning document..." (dunno who's emitting it)
is in front of Emacs Helm question for entering a search "pattern:"
When I say "in front", I mean that the question appears for a subsecond, but
immediately disappears as a new message (possibly generated before?) comes on
 I have that impression when reading the *Messages* buffer. The VC info is
chronologically before Org's question to resume clocking on a task.
