Do you have any add-ins installed?  Have you changed/updated your print drivers.

I suspect it's your 'graphics card drivers'

see
How to set graphics hardware acceleration back
http://www.pptfaq.com/FAQ00129.htm

If that works, then try updating your 'graphics card driver'

I have the same problem on a system that I am working on.  If you change your default printer from an HP to anything else, I bet your problem goes away.  I believe the issue is with and HP printer driver.

When adding text to a smart graphic
      It works fine when entered into the proper text input field  (Over to the left where the program indicates:  Type your text here

But if you click directly into the smart graphic and add text the file becomes unstable and often crashes
      IF you type right here, the file becomes unstable

The smart art functionality in office 2007 is buggy as hell, the moment that you start creating complex diagrams.

I doubt that there will be an answer on EE, as I think it's due to an implementation that hasn't been thoroughly tested.

I've had issues where when re-opening a powerpoint deck, that slides with smart art were corrupted, and replaced with blank slides.

Saving down to 2003 format solves that problem, but it's a pain.

Anyway...good luck with trying to find an answer - I'd just keep on submitting the error reports to microsoft.
