This happens to me at some point in essentially every session on my
powerbook 1400 running version 3.0.1.  I have meant to query WRI
support on this for a while.  As in your case, there  never seems to be
any associated follow-on problems to this  message (it appears in a
dialog box, not in the messages output). Would a knowledgeable person
at WRI like to comment on this?

Thanks,
