Error is thrown after fixing the multiple same serialized fields issue in class inheritance hierarchy



How to reproduce:
1. Open attached project "New Unity Project (1).zip" and scene "Sample"
2. In Hierarchy window, select "Main Camera" (in Console window, "The name is serialized multiple times" error appears)
3. In Project window, open "ParentClass" script and comment out "[SerializeField] private int _value" line
4. Go back into Unity editor and observe Console window

Expected result: no errors appear
Actual result: in Console window, a misleading "The same field name is serialized multiple times in the class or its parent class" error appears

Reproducible with: 2017.1.3p4, 2017.2.3f1, 2017.4.3f1, 2018.1.1f1, 2018.2.0b

Note: the error is thrown only once after coming back to the Editor

    Resolution Note (fix version ):

    This particular case has been investigated thoroughly and we have decided, in the interests of protecting the stability and features of Unity for users that rely upon the affected versions, to not address this fix for the time being. We understand that this will cause problems for some users, and so may address in a future version.
