Editor freezes and repaints constantly when entering a long string in the System Label of a VFX Graph



How to reproduce:
1. Open any project with Visual Effect Graph installed
2. Create a VFX Graph and open it
3. In a System Label enter loads of characters

Actual result: Error "Layout update is struggling to process current layout (consider simplifying to avoid recursive layout): EditorPanelRootElement unity-panel-container3 (x:0.00, y:0.00, width:1084.00, height:590.00) world rect: (x:0.00, y:0.00, width:1084.00, height:590.00)" is logged in the Console and the Editor might freeze and the user will have to close it without saving
Expected result: The System Label should have a character limit or other form of validation

Reproduced on: Windows 11

Reproducible with: 2021.3.32f1, 2022.3.13f1, 2023.1.19f1, 2023.2.0b17, 2023.3.0a13

  1. Resolution Note (fix version 2021.3.35f1):

    There is now a 128 character limit
