Priority: 4Not yet prioritized for a release


Severity: 3Workaround is possible

Steps to repro:

1. Open attached project and 't1' scene;
2. Open Frame Debugger (Window -> Frame Debugger);
3. Open Profiler (Window -> Profiler);
4. Enter Play mode;
5. In Frame Debugger window click 'Enable' button;
6. In Project folder select 'New Material' material;
7. Observe draw calls is Profiler and Shadows.RenderJobDir calls in Profiler.

Expected result:
There are only Static batch calls fo Cube shadows (see attached expected.png screenshot).
