Maya 2017 renderview UI bug

Hi guys,

I very frequently stumble across this UI bug where the Arnold renderview docks into the attribute editor. I think it has to do with me docking the renderview in the UI. Then when I launch Maya next, I sometimes get it. It's not a big deal, a Maya restart solves it. Just wanted to put it on the radar if it wasn't already there.

The error message upon opening the renderview is:

Error: line 1: Object's name 'ArnoldRenderView' is not unique.

Hi Zeno, Ive disabled/enabled(?) the lock in the top right of the UI menu. This disables the annoying docking problem. The only thing is it locks it for all windows which might not be what you want?
