Unity Editor crashes when restarting to change graphics API from DirectX 11 to OpenGL

Graphics - General


How to reproduce:
1. Open Unity
2. Load user-submitted project (
3. Open 'Character.unity' scene
4. Go to Edit->Project Settings->Player
5. Change graphics APIs between OpenGL and DirectX 11 (usually problem is reproduced in two attempts)

Expected result: Graphics APIs change without problems.
Actual result: Unity crashes while trying to switch to OpenGL from DirectX 11

* Having additional available graphics APIs eliminates the problem.
* Changing between other APIs doesn't reproduce the problem.
