** This issue is addressed in ArcGIS 9.0 Service Pack 2 (SP2) **If you have an annotation feature class and change it's symbology to that of a non-traditional marker symbol(hotel or church symbol), and attempt to copy those features into a new annotation feature class, ArcMap will crash.
The only drawback is that this only copies the graphic element - not any user-defined attributes. If your anno features have attributes, you will have to manually update the attributes for the pasted features.
