Game view disappears after playmode

Scene/Game View


This issue is floating and appears in a while when user works with Editor for a certain time.
Both GameView and SceneView should be visible.

To repro:
Create a simple project.
1. Add gameobject (cube, sphere, canvas etc).
2. Add some script (all projects contained Time.deltaTime()).
3. Start playmode.
4. Collapse Editor (?).

Actual result: If you expand Editor, Gameview will blackout (like no Display is selected).
Expected result: Gameview is not hidden.

Launch the editor with -force-gfx-direct flag.

Regression since 5.3.
Is present in 5.4 and trunk.
Tested on 5.4.0b24-b25-0f1-0f3, 5.5.0a3-5.5.0a5.

    What I do is click on the Animation Tab then back to game, which usually fixes it. Some times I have to click on Asset Store as well (not tried that on it's own).
    Very annoying, especially when it happens while in the middle of playing, as you can miss the part you have been waiting ages to see.

    When this has happened to me, I just close the Game view tab and add it back. I do not have to restart Unity.

    This is so frustrating ... it can only get the game view to show up after restarting Unity.
