    It's 2019 and I'm having this issue. Is this really not fixed yet?

    Like "SeriousACZ" pointed out, if you change the rendering time to happen in OnRenderObjects() instead of OnWillRenderObjects() it will not bug out the selection. As of Unity 5.3.5 there seems to no trade-off to that

    It still happens in 5.3.5 for me.

    Same here on 5.4b17 with a script derived from the standard water reflection.

    Note: if the rendering happens during OnWillRenderObject(), the view looks correct in the scene view but I can't select anything. If I click, there seems to be a significant chance the scene view will freeze and Unity will crash.

    If I switch the rendering to happen in OnRenderObject() for the scene view, the gizmos and lines are messed up (rendering into the reflection instead), but I can click on things and I avoid the crash.
