Bug Description

Clicking on the expo (workspace) button to enter, then leave expo mode results in the BFB quicklist menu opening.

Using ppa:unity-team/staging.

 - Click the expo button or use the workspace key to show all workspaces.
 - Click the expo button or use the workspace key again to leave expo mode.
Expected result:
 - Desktop should look as it did before the test.
Actual result:
 - The quicklist menu for the BFB icon is opened and left open.

This causes autopilot tests failures:

Ok, so, *normally* this bug is not present on my system, but there is a certain way I can trigger it on my staging machine. Since normally clicking on the workspaces and switching back works normally. But, if you first do this:
1. Start the expo (workspace switcher)
2. Now, leave expo by right-clicking on the BFB button

After these steps are done once, all subsequent entering and leaving expo results in the quicklist opened. So, probably unity remembered that it should open the quicklist and didn't clear the state when we're not leaving expo through the quicklists. This failure might happen in autopilot since we're actually testing if we're leaving expo when accessing the quicklist. So after this test is executed, all subsequent exits from expo open the quicklist.

So I confirm!
