    Still an issue in 5.4.1p2. Only seems to affect standalone builds. Appears to work correctly in editor.

    Same issue for me still in 5.4.1p1. The issue is resolved in 5.5 beta and still works in 5.5b4. However I have no idea if they intend to backport the fix.

    We are experiencing this issue in 5.4.0p3, and it is going to force us to disable Graphics Jobs until it gets fixed.

    Have been getting the same in 5.4.0 though we get 4 lights any more than that and they start to disappear.

    Which ones disappear depends on camera angle ... oddly the ones you face most directly are the ones that usually don't appear ... hadn't realised it was due to Graphics Jobs will test turning that off and update our note accordingly ... we have tried various other things as you can find blog entries on similar behaviour RE occlusion, baked lighting, etc. ... would love Unity to give us stable point lights someday.
