Error while Modify the Web Parts in SharePoint Page

I come across a strange error when I was trying to modify the web parts in a SharePoint page when I have not selected Edit Page from the Site Action Menu. The error says:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Upon further trial I found a Web Part was there on the SharePoint page which was in Minimized state. So if I try to modify any web part in this page the above error comes. I restored this web part and then error has gone and I was able to Modify the other web parts in the page without everytime after doing Edit Page from the Site Action.

Strangely this works fine if click Edit the Page first and try to modify other web parts even when one web part on the page is in minimized state!!!
