System becomes slow when using a Particle System with a Material that has a Shader that uses a Custom Shader GUI

Shuriken

-

When using a Particle System with a Material that has a Shader that uses a Custom Shader GUI it will end up in a state where every redraw of the Particle System GUI will cause a whole new Instance of the Custom Editor GUI to be created. That causes Windows and macOS to become super slow and gives a bad framerate.

To reproduce:

1. Download attached “ShaderGUIBugRepro.zip" project and open in Unity
2. Open "ReproScene" scene
3. Select the "Particle System" gameObject
4. Notice that the ShaderGUI Script logs in the Console once when selected (expected behavior), indicating that a new Instance of the Custom Editor was created
5. Modify any settings in the Shader by the Particle Material Inspector, like starting to drag the "Soft Particle Factor" slider
6. Notice that starts spamming the Console with a debug.log that is written whenever a new Instance of the Custom Editor is created

Notes:
- This issue appears both on Windows and macOS
- It stops spamming messages if Project is saved
- If this issue does not reproduce after sliding a Slider, then select another gameObject and then select "Particle System" gameObject
- If you still can’t reproduce it with those steps, please try uncompressing a new copy of the project and try again
