[Regression][OSX][5.4] Canvas is flickering when launching scene with Profiler window detached to external display



For repro you will need an external display and OSX system.

Steps to repro:

1. Open Unity on OSX;
2. Open attached project and 'test' scene;
3. Open Profiler window (Window -> Profiler);
4. Move Profile window to the external display;
5. Enter Play mode;
6. Observe Canvas gameobject (both Scene and Game views).

Actual result:
Canvas with all its contains (images, texts) starts flickering when Profiler window is moved to the external window (see attached gif video).
Regression introduced in Unity 5.4.

Expected result:
Canvas should not flicker when moving Profiler window to the external display.

Workaround is to launch Profiler at the same display as Editor.
