Broken: 2.76 (sub 9), branch: master, commit date: 2016-01-25 00:41, hash: fea44ed, type: Release
build date: 2016-01-25, 06:15:04
Worked: Have tried opening previous versions to test, but I can only go back as far as 2.75 without it crashing (the bug is still there).
**Short description of error**
metaballs don't appear in the viewport when several scenes contain metaballs
**Exact steps for others to reproduce the error**
- Fresh blend project.
- add metaball
- create new scene
- in new scene, add a metaball
- metaball in new scene isn't visible in the viewport, but shows up in rendered view.
