Repeatable Crash/System Freeze - Routed Systems 2010

I found this out while I was creating a new iPart, and never really noticed it because I try to use unique names for my parameters. When this first happened I accidently set the parameter name to "S", cancelled the error message and my system froze.


I've tried this on multiple templates (Default & User Created; IPT & IAM) and the crash/freeze is repeatable.  


1.  Start new part

2.  Open Parameters Dialog and Add a new parameter

3.  Use a parameter name that you know will be incorrect, i.e.- S, KG.  Something that Inventor already uses as a parameter name.

4.  You should get an error message saying something along the lines of "parameter name in use blah blah"

5.  Cancel error message.

6.  System freezes.  I can't ESC out of the dialog, can't cancel and it turns my screen to the faded white....


Can anyone please confirm that I am not the only one with this issue???


Thanks in advance,

Could not get this to freeze my system, but I'm on 2011.  Sorry.
