Is this code crashing your Mathematica session? (it can so look out :P)

DynamicModule[{a = 1},

   Framed["(", Background -> Dynamic[If[CurrentValue["MouseOver"], Blue, LightBlue]]],
   Framed["<", Background -> Dynamic[If[CurrentValue["MouseOver"], Blue, LightBlue]]]
   }, a]


enter image description here

Fast workaround would be to take Framed outside FlipView. I'm just curious if this happens to all of you and if it should be marked as a .
