rvaker, not sure what you mean, but kind of similar problem I have now too. I also get the "blank screen" but the thing is that the program scrolls down by itself the message, thus you see only white screen. If you see the scroll bar, scroll back up. I've got confused first time too, and thought it's not working.
But at the moment, I don't know how to fix this and have the message on top right away without scrolling.
