Description

UParticleSystemComponent::SetComponentTickEnabled can fail to disable ticking due to IsTickedManaged not checking if the particles system is pending registration.

The crash was in part because of customer code, but the failure to unregister the component is present without their code.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Download Attached project
  2. Extract and run
  3. Open the map "NewMap"
  4. PIE

RESULT

A crash will occur. There is also a particle system that continues to tick after being disabled.
