I had the same problem yesterday. I tried all variations of the
options mentioned in the Plot Legends Help, but to no avail. Then I
realized that I could use ShowLegend to make my own legend with any
thickness/style I wanted, but this was freezing my machine. It would
just crash my mathematica session. However, I was in Linux and that
might have been the reason, I don't know if it is reproducible in
other operating systems. Either way, you could use ShowLegend to
specify a legend, but I will be interested to see if anyone posts a
solution to the problem with the normal PlotLegend command.
