Delphi 2009 IDE Crash

I have encountered an interesting case of Delphi 2009 IDE (12.0.3420.21218, all updates installed) crash today. I just edited a code unit in Delphi IDE and pasted the code fragment written in built-in asm without asm..end directives. After a while the IDE stopped to react on my actions with 98% CPU load. I terminated the Delphi application from the task manager and restarted it. I did the same copy-paste action and about 10 seconds later IDE halted with “access violation” message box. I restarted Delphi again, opened the project, pasted asm code fragment, commented {..} the fragment quickly and saved the unit. The problem was solved.
Evidently the Delphi IDE tried to parse the pasted fragment in the background and failed because of some fatal IDE Editor bug.
