Me too. I constantly experience problems in input cells. I'm using a Mac.

Mma 3.0 is very unstable compared to v.2. With mma 3.0, the crash can also
totaly corrupt notebooks currently open, even they are already saved.
Solution: while working on important notebooks, make _backup copy_ every
few minutes.

If you have time, report reproducible crashes with detailed procedure to
Wolfram. Help them out a bit.
