Public bug reported: I'm running Ubuntu 17.10, and I have repeatedly had a problem with the desktop environment getting stuck in overview mode. When stuck, I can close and select windows, and access the menus at on the top bar, but I cannot exit overview mode. The only solution I've found is to log out and log back in. I'm not exactly sure what combination of circumstances causes it to happen, but it seems to happen more often if invoked via the corner hover point. It also happens in both Wayland and Xorg.
