  4. Place a Cube in the level
  5. Set the cube to 'Movable'
  6. Place a Cube in the level
  7. Set the cube to 'Static'
  8. Ensure this Cube is casting a shadow onto the first cube
  9. Set the Mobility of the Directional Light to 'Stationary'
  10. Build Lighting Only

Expected Results:
The Static Cube casts a shadow onto the Moveable Cube.

Actual Results:
The Moveable Cube isn't influenced by the Static Cube's shadow.
