Profiler crashes in ThreadDeserializer when enabling/disabling profiling quickly




Priority: 2Necessary for shipping a final release


Severity: 1Crash, freeze, data loss, work stops

These warning spam the console in Play mode for different particular projects:
Internal: JobTempAlloc has allocations that are more than 4 frames old - this is not allowed and likely a leak
To Debug, enable the define: TLA_DEBUG_STACK_LEAK in ThreadsafeLinearAllocator.cpp. This will output the call-stacks of the leaked allocations

To reproduce:
- download this project
- make sure the profiler window is open.
- go to: HexartUI->Scenes->Demo(Desktop)
- Run the scene: sometimes this will trigger the warning immediately
- if you don't see the issue, play through the UI a bit

Note: while i was investigating this issue, I also got a crash. See the Editor.log for stack trace (line 1935)
