[swift-users] How to debug Xcode: "An internal error occurred. Source editor functionality is limited"

Recently autocomplete, syntax highlighting, and auto-indent have stopped
working (or work for a few minutes then break) in my Swift 3.1 Xcode 8.3.1
project. The project compiles without any warnings.

I guess this is all due to problems that the SourceKitService has with my
code? I notice lots (around 30 all in last few minutes) of SourceKitService
crash logs all with the same crash stack (Included at end of this email).

My question is... what's the best way to find the problem?

Does anyone recognize the below stack and know what might be causing that
particular crash? Is there any way to log what file the SourceKitService is
working on, so I can see what it's doing before the crash?
