Renaming a custom ActorComponent class when that class is set as a component in a Blueprint and performing a Hot Reload will crash the Editor if the Blueprint is opened for editing after the project has been closed and re-opened in the Editor.
Possibly related to UE-4871.
The Editor crashes.
The Editor opens the Blueprint for editing and correctly shows the new name of the component.
