[regression] Launcher shortcuts overlay remains visible after window spread

Bug Description

Currently after upgrading to Unity 5.8 I notice some unwanted side effects while using the Spread by using Super+W.

Steps to reproduce:
Press Super+W , but do not choose any open application. Rather, close the spread using Super+W again.

Expected Behavior:
The spread closes returning to the normal view

What actually happens:
On returning to the normal view, the launcher does not autohide and also shown the number overlay on the launcher applications. Only temporarily switching to another workspace hides the launcher.
