@hjwp2, For most folk I do believe Super+L twice is sufficient but it isn't a full workaround. While it does suspend the machine, it doesn't prevent the thing folks are fussing about: If someone wakes up your machine the UI is still bugged, so a random citizen is still able to interact with the docks (so they can run any script you have in your dock). That and... maybe you don't want to suspend your machine. How big of a deal these are is... relative.

Locking the screen a second time works.

Lock screen is invoked (via WIN+L or via top right corner menu) and the lock screen is engaged (that is, lock screen clock shade drops down and screen fades to dark). Pressing ENTER brings back the lock screen and the password is prompted. 4) What happens: First Win + L lets the system in a half locked state in which the contents of the desktop are seen although no interaction is possible. A second Win + L correctly invokes the lock screen.
