      Description

      We can crash BlueJ by entering one character into BlueJ. Repeatable on two systems (Asus Eee with Win 7 Starter, iMac 27" 10.5.8)

      1. Create a new Applet.
      2. Call it anything you like.
      3. Scroll down to the paint method.
      4. in g.drawString, add a backslash character ('\')
      5. Wait. Or, perhaps, don't. If it doesn't take the first time, try again.
      6. Kill BlueJ.

      I've claimed this is "critical" and part of the "Editor," as that seems reasonable.
