Editor silently crashes or StackOverflowException is thrown when creating InspectorElement in CreateInspectorGUI method



Reproduction steps:
1. Open the attached project ""
2. Load the "SampleScene"
3. Select the "Test" GameObject in the Inspector window
-- Observe the silent crash

Reproduces on: 2019.3.6f1, 2020.1.0b3, 2020.2.0a3
Could not test with 2017.4 and 2018.4 due to multiple compilation errors

Note1: when returning a new InpsectorElement with a constructor without arguments only StackOverflowException is thrown and no crash occurs
Note2: when returning a new InpsectorElement with a constructor with arguments the Editor silently crashes without the StackOverflowException
Note3: the compiler sometimes doesn't detect changes made in TestEditor.cs, thus you have to manually refresh the script in the Project window

  1. Resolution Note:

    Confirmed that this is exhibiting behavior of an already existing and very difficult bug to resolve. Please refer to the parent case for a full explanation of what is happening. This bug is still in our list of items to attempt to address at some point!
