Re: Equation style crash bug

I have Windows 7 and Mathematica 7.0.0.

Every time I do that sequence of steps, or more generally, every time I have
two consecutive equations, and I have the cursor at the beginning of the 
second equation, if I press backspace I invariably get a crash of
Mathematica.

I just want to know if anyone has a similar issue before trying to reinstall
Mathematica or something.

Thanks.
