Short description of error
So, I'm a bit of a newbie, and I am positioning a bunch of cameras around a rollercoaster (physics project, your guess is correct). Now, I am using the transform menu on the right side of the layout screen, and manipulating the sliders to position each camera. This is all well and good, until you hit the wrong slider, and scale the camera. This led to Blender crashing.
After my last crash (the one that I discuss here(also, I might have three BlenderID's now)), I started saving obbsessivley, so I didn't lose any work. Just felt I ought to point it out.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Make a camera
Select the camera
Try to use the transform menu to rapidly scale the camera
Based on the default startup or an attached .blend file (as simple as possible).
