Particle System Stop Action Destroy doesn't destroy Particles which finish off screen




Priority: 4Not yet prioritized for a release


Severity: 4Minor or cosmetic issue

How to reproduce:
1. Download project "" and open in Unity
2. Open "Scene" scene
3. Enter play mode
--Notice that these particles which are spawned on screen (in front of the camera) are destroyed after play, but those who are spawned off screen (behind the camera) are not destroyed after play

Expected result: Particles should be destroyed either they are spawned on screen or off screen
Actual result: Particles which are spawned off screen are not destroyed after play

Reproducible with:2017.2.0p4, 2017.3.0f1, 2018.1.0a7

Pressing the Play button in the bottom right of the scene view will play and destroy that particle
Cannot be tested with 5.5-2017.1 because Stop Action was added to Particle System in 2017.2
