Yes, it seems to be back. When I have seen this before, and just now, it 
pops up when I switch the language to something else, then back to English.

For example, switching to German changes None to Keine. Initially, when 
I switched back to English things seemed Ok, but when I created a new 
document and made a frame, then Keine was there with this brown color.

I had to delete Keine with no document open to get rid of it permanently 
(or so far permanently).
