Certain Samsung devices have copy/paste flaw that could cause permanent problems?
One of the devices affected by the bug is the Samsung GALAXY Note
According to a thread on the Samsung Developers Forum which was opened last October and remains unresolved, Samsung devices running TouchWiz and Android 3.0 or higher are having problem with copy/paste. Occurring randomly, when a user tries to copy/paste, an error message appears. The application being used then crashes and the device becomes unusable until a factory reset is performed. Rooted users can clear the contents of the clipboard/data if a factory reset is unacceptable. Since the directory in the error message does not exist on stock Android, this is a problem coming from Samsung.

As of late October, the flaw was found on the following Samsung devices: Samsung Galaxy Note, Samsung Galaxy S II and variants, Samsung Galaxy S III and variants, Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1, Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. The thread remains open which means that the problem is unresolved although Samsung has known about it since last  and the October. Click on the video below to see the flaw in action.
