Default bug: odd crashing of directv unit

I've found what appears to be a bug. The steps to produce it are

While watching a program, bring up the Info on a program, and press Select
to record it. Then go into the season passes and other options menu and
then into the view Upcoming Episodes screen. Select one of the future
episodes and record this episode. When it returns to the Upcoming Episodes
screen hit the Guide button and resume watching live TV.

Now, wait until the program ends and then bring up the list again by hitting
the Left Arrow on the remote. Use the left arrow again to back up one
level. BLAMMO, the Tivo will reboot.

This on an RCA DVR39 running 6.2-01-2-121.
