The data detectors, at least in my TextEdit were turned off (never touched it before) so typing the aforementioned string doesn't cause any issues.

However in my stupidity of attempting to tell you guys that I could type the aforementioned string, I caused Safari to hang. No crash, but it was complete and utterly useless.

Nevermind ... re-ran TextEdit and tried again, immediately crashes. data detectors are still turned off.

Perhaps that preference only suppresses the display, but the data detectors still run.
