    Be sure your view in Finder is column view. Not necessary for the creating steps, but necessary for the bug execution.

    1. Create a new, blank folder.
    2. Create an alias (shortcut) from that folder and place it into the folder.
    For now, you can scroll through the folders unlimited, opening the folder, then the shortcut in the folder, and the shortcut in that folder, and so on.
    Schematic:
    Folder A > Alias to A > Alias to A > Alias to A > Alias to A > ...

    1. Create a new folder, and put an alias from that folder in that folder.
    2. Scroll a few aliases/folders to the right, and create a new folder.
    3. Open the shortcut and select the folder within that shortcut.
    4. Delete the folder.
    5. Go one step back and select the folder. You're now suddenly in Trash...
    6. Go back to the beginning. The Trash dialog should disappear.
    Schematic:
    1+2. Folder A > Alias to A > Alias to A
    1+2. ---------->------------> B
    3. Folder A > Alias to A > Alias to A > Alias to A (click on this row)
    3. ---------->------------> B ---------> B
    4. Folder A > Alias to A > Alias to A > Alias to A
    4. ---------->------------> B ---------> B (Delete the mostright B)
    5. Folder A > Alias to A > Alias to A
    5. ---------->------------> B (click on this B and see what happens)

    1. Create a new folder.
    2. Create a second folder within that Folder.
    3. Create an alias from the first folder and place it into the second folder.
    4. If you scroll through the right with your mouse or trackpad, nothing special will happen. But if you scroll by pressing the right arrow key several times, Finder will crash and restart.
    Schematic:
    A > B > Alias to A > B

    ...wow

    to be quite honest, I don't see how this bug is going to affect the workflow of the average user.

    It doesn't. But it's that kind of bug that has still to be solved before it will be released. It's a bug that can be found with quality assurance (e.g. testers), or something in the like and must be solved there before it reaches the consumers. Just the finishing touches.;)

    Ps.: Does this happen on 10.6 too?
