I've never seen that error message, but I'll make a guess anyway. The
message box has auto-complete and I've seen some actions refuse to work
if there is an auto-complete suggestion in the message box that hasn't
been either accepted or removed. If part of the existing message text is
dimmed, it's a suggestion that hasn't been dealt with. Hit the right
arrow key to accept the suggestion (you don't need to actually execute
it) and then try closing the stack.
I'm not sure that's actually the problem but it's the first thing I'd try.
