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 .

yes, at first sight! :-) crash!! –  Mika Ike Mar 25 at 12:23
crashes when clicking on it, mma 9.0.1 on Windows 7 64bit, please report as a bug... –  Albert Retey Mar 25 at 13:03
@AlbertRetey done. –  Kuba Mar 25 at 13:19
yep, also on OSX 10.8.5 (Mathematica 9.0.1) it crashes –  gpap Mar 25 at 14:24
Perhaps related: Avoid crash in recursive Dynamic. The fix there does seem to work here if it wraps Framed. –  Jens Mar 25 at 16:43
