Crash using USD in standin

Hi,

I decided to test out the new features of Arnold 4.0.3.
More specifically the USD support in Arnold.

What I did was create a simple object (in my case a Chrome ball)
Exported that selection into a USD using the USD exporter that's now native in arnold 4.0.3.
Afterwards import it through a standin.

This all works, BUT when I create a second standin and use the same source file of the usd the problems start.

The moment i want to render this out (IPR) either:

-Maya instantly disappears

-Maya freezes completely, IPR keeps a black screen and CPU keeps calculating at 97%

Don't really think there will be a solution but thought I should share this with the devs.
Hope this helps :)

Thanks a lot for reporting, we have indeed noticed these crashes in other plugins too.

We're looking into fixing it ASAP for a future hotfix.


Cheers
