Bug introduced in 10.0.1 or earlier and fixed in 10.1.0

Can someone confirm the following behavior: Open a new Mathematica and go to the documentation. Navigate to any reference page (I used RegionPlot) and click repeatedly and very fast the RegionPlot link in one of the usages.

After a short time (sometimes maybe a bit longer) Mathematica crashes. I have made a screen-cast of this:

My system is:

  • Ubuntu 14.04
  • Mathematica 10.0.2
  • $\begingroup$ Same on Fedora 21, v10.0.1. But I need to click like 15 times before it crashes. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Öskå It's the same here. Sometimes it crashes after only a few clicks and sometimes I need 50 clicks. But it always crashes. One time, the front end froze without crashing but I had to kill the session. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ For 32 bit ubuntu 10.04 version Mma v10.0.1 I had to click more that 40 times. Sometimes frontend don't crash, however occupies 100% cpu and no response. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ The work around is to click slower :p $\endgroup$
