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?
