    Repair permissions and maybe remove the Dock preferences (com.apple.dock.plist) if that doesn't work. :)

    If you can't repair it from you machine then if you have a OS X CD you can boot up from that and use the Disk Utility there

    Have you by chance turned on Debug mode for your dock?

    Either way,
    Try a Reboot, then Repair.

    If that doesn't work try to zap the P-RAM, reboot then repair. (though I am not sure that this portion of the Desktop is in the Pram, it may release locked resources that could be affecting it )

    ::EDIT::
    Darwin has a great point. Didn't think about that!
