    It keeps happening to me, it's not fixed. 2018.2.2f1.
    Just like GIAWA said, it randomly crashes when coming back from editing scripts, for me in MonoDevelop.

    "Fixed in future release" but it would be really nice to know what fixes it. This is so if we get a bug in future, we can at least immediately test that case as well, to better create repro cases.

    Happens to me in 2018.2.0f2 (Windows), usually when recompiling scripts after editing in Visual Studio. Using latest Unity extensions for Visual Studio.
