Group: V 2.36 release
Steps to reproduce from scratch (if you use the attached file, only step 7 needs to be executed):
1) Start blender (retain the default scene).
2) Split the 3D view into two (yields two horizontal panes).
3) Change the left pane to a "Scripts window"
4) Change the right pane to an "Outliner"
(No pane with a 3D View should remain)
5) Save the scene
6) Choose "File|Reopen Last"
7) Expand the Outliner and click on the Mesh child of any object
(Cube in the default scene).
