It appears right after loggin on with no apps running. I've tried restarting the Finder to no avail. I've done repair permissions, repair harddisk. It happend when my cat was resting on my laptop. She might have triggered some very exotic key combination?

An other hint:
When the grey box is visible it seems as if the keyboard is disabled.

I've just made a new user profile and logged in. The blinking bar was not there. After this I logged in in my original user profile and the bar was gone there to! :D

Anyways, back to work.

It's probably one of your softwares you installed. You have a lot of software there.

I think its one of the accessibility features of OSX as noted above, which makes sense since a new account won't have that turned on by default.

Its that or some software starting up after you log in. My bet is accessibility.
