NullReferenceException Error is thrown and UI Elements Break when Docking a Search Window with 3D Preview in the Inspector Opened



*Steps to reproduce:*
# Create any Project
# Create a GameObject from a primative (e.g. "Cube")
# Open a Search Window (Window > Search > New Window)
# Search for that Object's name ("Cube")
# Select it in the Search Window and open the Search Window's Inspector (F4)
# Dock that search Window anywhere

*Actual results:* "NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object" Error is logged in the Console and Some Layout elements are either ineffective until redrawn or are not shown at all, like the docked Window's Label

*Expected results:* No issues appear when docking the Search Window and elements are selected

*Reproducible with versions:* 2023.2.0a9, 6000.0.8f1

*Not reproducible with versions:* 2021.3.40f1, 2022.3.35f1, 2023.2.0a8, 2023.2.20f1

*Tested on (OS):* Windows 11

* It seems that the issue is fixed in 2023.2.20f1, but the regression starts at 2023.2.0a9 for this specific issue. Keep in mind that in 2023.2.0a8 a different issue is present that started as a regression in 2023.2.0a5.

  1. Resolution Note:

    Search: Ensure we rebind properties when docking/undocking the SearchWindow if the detail view is opened.
