1. Open my attached project "DoYouCopy.zip"
2. In Hierarchy window, find "ButtonMap" Game Object and select it
3. In Hierarchy window, find "Map" Game Object and select it
4. Observe the console
Expected: no errors appear
Actual: console errors being flooded "Layout update is struggling to process current layout "

Note1: issue only appears when selecting if the both of the object have Image component enabled, seems like there's several more conditions to be met
Note2: issue does not reproduce if editor is not maximized
Note3: does not reproduce on Mac
Note4: full error: Layout update is struggling to process current layout (consider simplifying to avoid recursive layout): VisualElement unity-panel-container15 (x:0.00, y:0.00, width:389.00, height:947.00) world rect: (x:0.00, y:0.00, width:389.00, height:947.00)UnityEngine.GUIUtility:ProcessEvent(Int32, IntPtr)

This's still happening in 2021.3 LTS when opening the UI Builder window

This issue is still happening in Unity 2020.1.12f1 for Windows. I get it when viewing VFX Graphs.

I don't understand. It says that this problem was fixed, but I don't see any resolution.
Also, it's weird how sometimes this error will prevent me from playing my game, but then all of a sudden, my game will work perfectly(even though the error is still there).

I got the same issue in Unity 2019.3.0a7.
I use MacBook Pro (Two monitor setup), MacOS Mojave Version 10.14.5 , Graphics card; Radeon Pro 460 4GB and Intel HD Graphics 530 1536 MB.
The issue occurs when opening a second project , and then closing it down. The Error message then displays on the remaning project:
Layout update is struggling to process current layout (consider simplifying to avoid recursive layout): VisualElement unity-panel-container4 (x:0.00, y:0.00, width:398.00, height:926.00) world rect: (x:0.00, y:0.00, width:398.00, height:926.00)
