While editing in 10.2.1, a line created using the ellipse tool was selected using the split tool. Instantly and without a sound, the previously happily running ArcGIS disappeared.

Perhaps a message saying, "Oops, silly you, did you mean to select THAT feature? You can't, unless your goal is to immediately close ArcMap without saving edits and without saving the map. Try again." Might that be a nicer response?
