What browser are you using? There is a callback that should be
reacting to window's resize.

Unless I misunderstood something this should destroy message
completely, and I needed this change because the way in which I am
hiding page's content makes recent AJAX message to come back when I
close create table dialog. It's in the same commit as dialog's change
for easy rollback.
