Product:Xcode 9 Product Version:
Classification:Bug Reproducible:

I use CMake very often so it is often that I have Xcode opened with a project that I regenerate from CMake. It is very often that Xcode 9 crashes. Xcode generates crash report automatically but I thought I could open this report to provide a background for this crash.

Steps to Reproduce:
- Have a CMake-based project
- Generate Xcode target using CMake once
- Open Xcode with a generated .xcodeproj
- Generate Xcode target using CMake once again
- Xcode crashes

Expected Results:
Xcode does not crash. Instead it has some smarter strategy to detect the project contents change.

Actual Results:
Xcode crashes.

Version 9.0 (9A235)
