Doesn't apply to Files 3.26 on Ubuntu 17.10 where pressing Esc causes an
animation to occur where the icon appears to return to its original
position (though the icon in its original position is always visible
there anyway).

  Nautilus window leaves icon on the screen

Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  The Nautilus application will leave an icon on the screen when you
  start to drag a file and then press ESC to cancel.  This icon is not
  attached to the Nautilus window and persists on the screen even when
  Nautilus is closed.  The icon also appears on all workspaces when
  multiple workspaces are enabled.  This icon is always on top of all
  other windows, so gets in the way of other work.

  The only way that I know how to get rid of these icons is to log out
  and log back in again.
