    Same problem with Unity Version 2018.2.5f1 (3071d1717b71), MacOS 0.13.6 (17G2208). "Reimport all" crashes (closes?) Unity but never restarts and never actually reimports assets.

    As a workaround I delete the Library folder, which forces reimport, but Assets > Reimport All still doesn't work.

    This causes a problem to me too, while I was solving another bug " UI does not exist in UnityEngine"....
    I'm using Unity 2017.2.1f1, with Win10 64 bits.
