MAXscript Listerer is Deaf?

So, it appears as through my MAXscript Listener has stopped anything. It hasn’t gone totally deaf...the Output pane (white) seems to be working fine...the Macro Reader pane (pink), however, isn’t doing bubkiss. I’ve enabled macros, disabled macros, gone through all kinds of checking and unchecking of settings and there doesn’t seem to be an easy way to jumpstart it.

Has this happened to anyone else? Does any one have any ideas I could try out? I really don’t want to have to reinstall Max for something as minor as this, but I do use it rather frequently.

any help is much appreciated. thanks in advance!
