If you have a dialog box up on screen and yout press the overview button
(the dot next to the arrows in the button bar), the dialog box changes to
show you an outline of the last three dialog box message titles.

My guess is that as you were cleaning the screen, you pressed hard enough
on the button bar to try to move the Extras icon (which you can't do -
you get an error message if you try) and since Extras is next to the
arrows and overview button you then hit that next and caused the error
message to switch to the outline mode mentioned in the paragraph above.
