Description:
Flipping through the status and system variable in administrator causes

a) weird descriptions (e.g. on performance/sort variables) and
b) finally crashes administrator

How to repeat:
open health/status or system variables and then click through the variable areas, check the descriptions in the right pane-> corrupted, finally crash or hang
