Just typed in

  Line[{{0, 0.5}, {1, 0.5}}],
  Thin, Line[{{0, 0}, {1, 1}}],
  Thick, Line[{{1, 1}, {0, 0}}]}]

executed it,  no visible Thin line.

Selected and Saved output cell as PDF, opened with Illustrator, Selected 
All in Illustrator -- no Thin line there (even invisible or transparent 
objects appear when you Select All in Illustrator).

Opened Help for Thin.  First Example in the Help document, as opened, 
shows no Thin line, but does show Thick line.  Inserted "Red," directive 
in both parts of this Example, re-executed it.  Thick line turned red, 
still no Thin line.  Thin line does show in following Example, which 
uses Graphics3D.  (Note:  Already did and reported this same observation 
in original post.)

Basically vanilla MacBook with Apple Cinema external display, OS 
10.4.11, Mathematica, no other current glitches with Mathematica
or anything else I've been running on this machine.
