Certainly. To quote from HELP POPLOG:

    All Poplog users are invited to submit bug reports and enhancement
    requests: see HELP * BUGFORM for details.

And that includes anyone using the free Linux version. The "unsupported"
tag just means that you can't expect a reply.

Don't be confused by Aaron's reply. The simplest thing to do is ignore
the warnings -- they're harmless. Or if you want to be consistent with
the 14.51 system in COGS, add

    compile_mode global :pop11 +oldvar;

to your "init.p" file. But yes, it is a bug: something that got
overlooked in the changeover.
