    -Case 722604
    Two of my 14 machines are having this issue. It just so happened that when I sent this report, I tested the case on a another machine beforehand and that ended up being the only other PC displaying these symptoms.

    Note-
    These PCs have very different hardware.

    So I felt the need to correct my words in the report. To try and fix it, I started by fully updating the firmware and software on the PC.. any updates I could find. Then I uninstalled and reinstalled Unity, then I deleted the project from my hard drive and checked a fresh copy out from our server. Nothing that I tried worked.

    Same issue here. Prior 5.1.x version (and the 5.2 beta that I have on another machine) don't have the same issue.

    I have cornered this to a definite editor bug, I clean installed a new version of windows and got it fully loaded with software (c++redist, dx, etc..) and still the problem persists..

    A third machine just started exhibiting the same behavior sporadically. We're having trouble finding the cause. And the fact that this one machine is displaying the bug infrequently is concerning my devs. Will keep this post updated..

    I will look in to this and reply when I have the time, I received a response from bugs@unity3d, here is the applicable excerpt:
    "We have identified this bug report as a duplicate by checking our crash analysis system. This crash, which occurs when exiting play mode, has identical stack trace. Other user's guess was that crash might be caused by (RuntimeInitializeOnLoadMethod). But that is just a guess. So also might be useless information."

    I thank you.
    For us the problem has been fixed by disabling alpha numeric sorting in the Preferences dialog accessible via the Edit menu.

    Thanks a LOT !! Turning off alpha numeric sorting check box has indeed stopped the crashes. I am not sure if I turned this option on or if it was on by default, I don't know what it does. I wasted quite a bit of time trying to find a workaround, good that I checked the forums.
