Bug Description

With WiFi Display we're using the screencast API from our management service aethercast to create an virtual display which is then used by Unity 8. If aethercast crashes the virtual output seems to stay as Unity 8 never switches back from the virtual touchpad its displaying since the virtual output is use.

When aethercast terminates the screencast connection Unity 8 switches correctly back to the phone interface.

I suspect this is reproducible with mirscreencast too.
