After debugging an application in C#Builder Personal v1.0, the messages window tab which was unpinned at the bottom of my IDE, covered the entire IDE, including the Menu and shortcut bars at the top.

I was able to duplicate this problem on a PC and a notebook, each running Windows XP Professional and C#Builder Personal.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start C#Builder, make sure that the 'messages'
window is unpinned to the IDE by clicking on the
pin button in the caption bar.
2. Open any project
3. Hit F9 or click the run button to compile and
run the application.
4. Close the application. At this point the
messages window will cover your entire screen.

You can still access the menu options by
clicking on ALT plus the letter key
(ie. F for file). I had no choice but to exit.
Simple workaround for now is to make
sure that the messages tab is pinned to the
IDE before debugging.

Ok, I've noticed that this problem is related to the "Show Command Line" option when it is checked. So another workaround to this odd behavior is to select the "Tools|Options..." menu option and make sure that "Show Command Line" is unchecked (located in the Environment Options section)before you compile and debug a program.
