Why Windows Explorer crash if I shift-delete a directory that has been created as part of the 'libraries' of in the Exporer in the pane hierarchy of directory on the left side of the Explorer?

I just discovered a very basic bug in Windows 7 file Explorer:

Open the folder "libraries." Select any item under 'Libraries', for example 'Documents '. In the hierarchy of folders in the 'Documents' left right click and select 'New'-> 'folder '. Select the directory newly created in the hierarchy of folders (always in the left frame of the Explorer). Right-click in the right frame and select 'New'-> 'text Document '. Open the newly created document, enter text and save it. Now, again select the new folder in the hierarchy of folders in the left frame and type + . An error message appears stating something like "C:\Users\Public\Documents\FOO refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer or on a network. Make sure that the disc is inserted correctly, or that you are connected to the Internet or your network, and then try again. If it can't be located, the information may have been moved to another location. »

When you click OK in the window of the Explorer will crash and respan itself after a short period of time.
