Typing the word microbrew in text messages lock up device on the Samsung Instinct

If you type the word 'microbrew' in the text composer, device will freeze up and eventually power cycle. Spelling variations of the word 'microbrew' will also cause same behavior.

Use "micro brew" with a space to bypass issue until fix is available.

Microbrew, Townhomes, Witherspoon. At first I thought it was an issue with long words that the Instink thought should be hyphenated or considered 2 words, micro brew, town homes, wither spoon. So I got bored and started typing a bunch of words that fit that scenario but was never able to replicate the crash with any other word other than those 3.
