Scenario: I have one PSD open in one window and a PNG screen shot in another window open. If I accidentally hit the type tool on the PNG, both documents become uneditable and appear to be inactive documents. Saving works, but it does not confirm I've saved and all other tools become inactive. I have to shut down each time this happens.

What platform are you on? (Mac or Win?)

Sounds like you have a bad font.
