Bug Description

Unity hangs pretty bad if you open the apps lens/files lens, click on an item available to install/ on a file icon, drag it to the launcher (which then causes one of your open apps to expose), and then drag it back to where it was on the launcher. The entire Unity UI then gets stuck in expose mode and it is difficult to get out of it.

To reproduce:

 1. Click the apps lens.
 2. Click on an item available to install, drag it to the Launcher but don't drop it and move it up and down until you see one of your apps zoom out in the expose-like way.
 3. Now, still having not dropped it, drag it back to where it was on the dash in the apps lens and drop it.

Unity now gets stuck in the spread mode.
