Bug Description

STEPS TO REPRODUCE
 1. Open qterminal, e.g. run `qterminal`
 2. Go to File → Preferences
 3. Click on Dropdown
 4. Note the value of the shortcut key, which can be optionally changed, but defaults to F12
 5. Click OK
 6. Open qterminal dropdown, e.g. run `qterminal --drop`
 7. Press the shortcut key to hide the dropdown
 8. Press the shortcut key to show the dropdown
 9. Repeat 7-8 several times over

EXPECTED RESULTS
Shortcut hotkey toggles visibility of qterminal dropdown every time.

ACTUAL RESULTS
Shortcut hotkey toggles visibility of qterminal dropdown some of the time, but is not consistent. It does not always succeed and it does not always fail. When it fails, it appears to flicker, as if it hides and then becomes immediately visible again.

AFFECTED VERSIONS
qterminal 0.9.0-3ubuntu3
Linux 4.18.0-8-generic x86_64

Added the output of `strace qterminal --drop`, followed by 19 repeated Ctrl+Alt+Z keystrokes, a Ctrl+C, and an exit. The 19th one was the failure. It should have hidden the dropdown, but did not.
