Error messages of the kind shown above are emitted by the front end's
typesetting code.  It is an indicator that a formatting action
somehow created a state that should not have occurred.  The causes for
this type of message vary from situation to situation.

Technical Support is willing to accept such reports from users:
 
http://support.wolfram.com/FrontEnds/System/InternalError.html

regardless of registration status or service level.

The "what you were doing" portion of the error message may be a bit
vague.  It is not necessary really to describe what you were evaluating.
Rather, you should take a look at what editing keystrokes you may
have made before the message was displayed.  Another thing to keep
an eye open for is if it occurs as you're evaluating a cell or group
of cells.  It may be that the problem is occurring as the front end
attempts to format the box form of the output to a cell.
