Extra Material slots on HierarchicalInstancedStaticMesh Components when using LOD'd Static Meshes.
When using a static mesh with multiple LOD's attached inside a HierarchicalInstancedStaticMesh BP Component, the HISM is adding extra Material Slots to itself. The extra slots occasionally change in amount and location in the list, though I haven't figured out what is making this change. This is making swapping in dynamic materials really awkward. One of these in our current project has 11 slots for a static mesh with 7 materials.
