I will submit this to WRI just in case it is not known.

But this is just fyi.

To reproduce

1. open new notebook (file->New)
2. click on Insert->Table/Matrix->New
3. Take all the defaults, but make sure the 'fill in' field
    is blank (i.e. remove the 0 that is there)
    (like this screen shot http://12000.org/tmp/nov_02_2012/matrix.png
4. Now a new matrix will be created (default 3 by 3).
5. point the mouse to the first cell.
6. Hit RETURN. If it does not crash, hit RETURN again.

Now the kernel will crash !

Windows 7, SP1. Mathematica 8.04

Here is a screen shot
