Bug introduced in 10.2 or earlier and persisting through 11.3
Recently updated from Mathematica 8.0 to 10.2 running on Windows 7 (8.0 was uninstalled before installing 10.2). Anytime a 3d graphics is rendered, the first rendering in a notebook is completely normal. The second rendering always crashes, requiring a kill process. For example:
Line : Graphics3D[Sphere]
Always renders correctly the first time. However, if you re-enter Line  or even enter a new line using Graphics3D (or related: Plot3D, etc), Mathematica crashes. Here is a view of my SystemInformation:
I have the latest NVIDIA graphics drivers.
- The above system information refers to DirectX 9. I have DirectX 11 installed. Is this a mistake that I should fix?
- Is this some issue with dynamic evaluation? I turned dynamic evaluation off and I still get the crashing after a second graphics is rendered. But still..?
- What else should I try?
Thanks in advance.
