Mathematica 6.0.1, Crashes when I hit the ENTER key !!

This is the most amazing thing. This is on XP.

I have put the notebook in this folder, it is called demo2.nb

and 2 screen shots of the crashes here

Simply open it. it is just ONE cell.  Simply hit the ENTER key to define the 
code in the cell. You'll get the GUI from Manipulate shown.

Now, without doing anything, hit the ENTER key again.  Now Mathematica 
crashes.  If it does not crash for you, try saving the file, then hit ENTER 
again. For me it crashes every time.

This is what happened. I've been working on this all night.  I added TabView 
at the end, which calls functions, which in turn use Manipulate. Things 
started to crash soon after that. I am not sure if it is the TabView is 
causing the problem or not. I think this is the problem:  Having TabView 
inside Manipulate is causing it to crash.  But I was not able to decide for 
sure, as almost anything I do, causes Mathematica to crash now. Maybe I 
should just removed TabView altogether, although I really like to use it.

Could someone please try this on their PC to see if they get the same
