    This is exactly the error I wondered !
    I still get this error on version 2017.1.0b9.

    I'm getting similar problem on 5.6.2f1 ver

    error description is totally same.

    1. I have some gameObjects that have script which controls some UI.
    2. when script turns on some UI that is on 'screen space-camera' , same errors occur
    3. the errors occur only at first time. turning off and re-turning on is okay
    4. I have several Canvases which is working in this way. and Each Canvases makes same error when they are on

    I think this error does not affect on game (in all aspect) but still makes me uncomfortable
