I just found what is causing this crash, but I do not know WHY.

Once the GUI is up, (from TabView and Manipulate), then if I hit Enter, then 
it crashes. But if I DELETE the cell in which the GUI is displayed BEFORE I 
hit the enter key, then Mathematica does NOT crash.

It seems hitting enter when the GUI is up is the problem.

Now, I make sure I delete the cell in which the gui is in everytime before I 
do anything,.sometimes I forget and end up losing some code changes.
