[iOS] new "Process symbols" build phase added to Xcode project with each subsequent Append build when Services are enabled



Reproduction steps:
1. Create a new Unity project.
2. Enable Services in "Window > General > Services".
3. Build to iOS.
4. Open the Xcode project.
5. Open the "Build Phases" tab.
6. Notice one Process symbols phase.
7. Build the Xcode project again on top of the old project.
8. Select "Append".
9. Open the Xcode project.
10. Open the "Build Phases" tab.
11. Notice two Process symbols phases.

Actual behavior(Screenshot attached(SCR97)):
- Each subsequent Append build adds one or more "Process symbols" phase.
- Amount of "Process symbols" phases on each build:
Test1: 1 > 2 > 4 > 5
Test2: 1 > 2 > 3 > 4
Test3: 1 > 2 > 3 > 4

Reproduced with:
2017.4.0f1, 2019.1.0f2

- Couldn't test with 2019.2. Another issue prevents the build. The library is duplicated recursively until the path length cap is reached(Screenshot attached(SCR98)).

    Still a problem i Unity 2018.4.25f1 LTS. Every time I make a build I have to wait for xcode to launch and then remove the extra process symbols step(s). Really should be fixed

    Are there any plans to be fixed in the 2018 LTS?

    Still occurring in 2018.4.14 LTS. As well as slowing down local builds and eating memory it causes Unity Cloud builds are to take MUCH longer and taxes Unity servers to boot.

    Using 2018.4 LTS, it's really annoying bug. Please fix that in LTS too

    This is currently also an issue in 2019.1.13f1.

    I believe this leads to multiple instances of usymtool opening when trying to build to device in Xcode.

    After a while this will ram-hog any device, making builds very difficult.
