Short description of error
• For hair particle systems, only a single strand is displayed in the viewport.
• Hair is rendered correctly in cycles, but not EEVEE.
• In some recent builds, particle edit mode works and displays parent particles correctly, but in current build switching to particle edit mode crashes Blender.
• Location of single strand displayed changes if number of particles is changed. Setting particle count to 0 crashes Blender.
