Has anyone else seen typed text that causes CD to lock up? (I'm using Ultra 6.0 at the moment.)

I found out while labelling structures with Roman numerals that a capital X followed by two of some (but not all) other capital letters (i.e. Xnn) causes CD to freeze when attempting to save and exit. Lower case letters after the X are not a problem.

X followed by two of X, V, I (or A, B, C, D, K, W, for example) locks up but X followed by just one of them and a J or L, for example, does not.

Both the letter and the order also matter. XVX, XVI, and XVV are OK but XXV or XIV are not. Very weird.
