I had the same exact box happen to me at 4:30 am.
The strange thing about it is I made my own day night change for my internal skins and it uses an autoit script to change the skin.
So it cannot have anything to do with Skippy’s stuff in my skin.
The only thing I can think of in my case coming out of hibernating then switching skins right away is causing this.
And the only RR command I use for this is reloadskin.
EDIT Added my RR code
the autoit will send DAYSKIN or NIGHTSKIN
"DAYSKIN","BYVAR;VOICESAY;<<SAY; day time||SAVETOSKIN;WHATSKIN;0||BYVAR;SDAY;SAYDNSETUP<<SKIN1<<SKIN2<<SKIN3<<SKIN4<<SKIN5<<SKIN6<<"
After changing the size of frmskin.frm to 6px*6px in VB and recompiling RR, the size of the evil grey rectangle has changed accordingly - it's now a tiny square in the top left of the screen, which I can live with. No problems yet; possibly this form is used by part of RR I don't have enabled, e.g. Phoco.
frmskin is the main skin form, it's where any screen you see in RR is painted.
if you see the box you are seeing it means that for some reason RR has not been able to load the graphics onto the screen it is trying to load.
The only reason that would show up is if the skin path is wrong or the requested skin is damaged/missing. RR has a prevention to warn of the problem when FIRST loading but not on skin changes cause it assumes the skin and path are correctly setup.
Strange - I can switch day/night skins manually with no problem. The night skin does load when switched automatically, but the grey box appears on top of it.

When I switch skins my ignative-iGuidance closes and any route currently active gets put on hold. When you click on the GPS button afterwards then iGuidance will restart but the route will not be active (but still saved in your itinerary). Is that something that just must be lived with?
Anybody have any updates on this problem? I have this exact same thing happen on automatic skin changes after Hibernation only!
