Bug Issue: Added behaviours for actor types are not added for actor instances (major bug)

When I attached additional behaviour to an actor type, the new behaviour did not attach to a specific actor instance, which had been manually placed in the scene a long time ago. This caused crashes because I started having null object references and such. Using Inspector on the actor instance in the Scene Editor confirmed the problem: the new behaviour was not listed in the actor properties.

Once I deleted the actor in the scene editor and placed it procedurally, the problem disappeared.

I imagine that the correct engine behaviour would be: Update list of behaviours for a given actor type -> all existing actor instances are updated as well.

Hope this gets fixed soon!

This falls in line with some slated improvements for the next major release, so for now I'll tag it for that.
