What happened to my message box?

Craig's trick has never worked for me. Yes, I deleted all the prefs and
reinstalled LC. That didn't help. Messages are turned on but that was a
good thing to check.

I'm limping along with my self-rolled message box so I'm able to move
forward at this point. Thanks for the reply.
