What happened to my message box?

Since this has happened to at least two of us, I thought I'd follow up with
my solution.

Hitting return in the bottom of the msg box did not fix this for me,
however, simply restarting my Mac did. I have no idea what kind of system
conditions would have resulting in such a strange and specific problem with
LC, but the restart did fix this problem. Go figure.
