Bug Description

running unity8 desktop deb session on xenial + overlay

- Launcher set to always show
1) open in webbrowser-app
2) maximize browser
3) play a video
4) click the fullscreen button on bottom right, video now playing in fullscreen mode
5) move mouse cursor to bottom right of screen,
6) Expected result: no change in window.

Actual result:
window leaves fullscreen mode, shows window controls and black border where launcher usually is, bottom of window is cutoff. Stuck in this state until you press esc, which then causes parent browser window to be obscured by launcher again (see lp:1665723)
