My flight from BUF-BDL today was cancelled due to "a bubble in the tail" according to the gate agents. The aircaft was a US Dash-8 prop. Has anyone ever heard of such a thing?

The only thing I can even remotely guess is that one of the control surfaces in the tail (usually made of composite materials) was discovered to have some type of delamination. That delamination may have been "translated" into something simplier and more easy to understand by the local station folks.
