(Case 1249701) Standalone profiler doesn't record in editor mode even when Editor mode is selected

It is possible to make the Standalone Profiler NOT record in Editor mode even when Editor recording is selected.

This is reproducible in an empty project:

In Editor Mode open the Standalone Profiler [Window->Analysis->Profiler (Standalone Process)]
Notice that it displays [RECORDING PLAY] and has Playmode selected and it is NOT recording (as expected)
Switch from Playmode to Editor
Now it displays [RECORDING EDIT] and starts recording (as expected)
Close the profiler
Close Unity
Start the Unity Editor again
Open the Standalone Profiler again
Notice that it displays [RECORDING PLAY] and has Playmode selected and it is NOT recording (as expected)
Switch from Playmode to Editor
Now it displays [RECORDING EDIT]
Also notice that it is not recording this time

Thanks a lot for the report! You should hear back from QA soon.
