    Update: I was able to manually remove orphaned script component references in the scene file via text editor. The issue occurred when calling DestroyImmediate in Reset() which resulted in a crash in 2019.4.10f1. I'll upgrade to 2019.4.21f1.

    I just started getting these errors after an editor crash. Tried reimporting all. No difference. Unclear if scene is damaged. Planning to attempt manual fix. Wish me luck...

    I have this issue and it doesn't appear to cause any adverse effects in my case, but it very frequently comes up as a false positive error and it would be nice if it was fixed.
