I upgraded to 10.7.4 and my dock on the bottom (with no enhancements) received this light/shadow box effect on startup. (It used to have no background.) I don't seen an option to remove it—is this a bug or a permanent change, and how can I easily revert it?

Try this:

  1. Launch Terminal.app from /Applications/Utilities/
  2. Type defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean NO and press return.
  3. Type killall Dock and press return.
