Bug Description

[Impact]
The user will fail to stop to fade-to-blank if the mouse covers the top panel.

[Test case]
1) Move the mouse over the panel
2) Lock the screen using Super+L
3) Once the lockscreen is shown move the mouse over the panel

Expected behavior:
4) The lockscreen doesn't fade to blank

Actual behavior:
4) The lockscreen starts fading to blank, unless the pointer leaves the panel area

[Regression potential]
Please make sure input is correctly handled in lockscreen. Check text entry, indicators, etc.

This seems fixed in 14.04 and newer releases unless I'm not understanding or following the repro steps correctly. Shall we go ahead and mark it Fix Released?

Brandon also can't reproduce, so going to mark this Fixed Released and remove the linked branch.

We can reopen if we have misunderstand the repro steps.

Yep, after getting educated by andyrock, I can reproduce, so I'll set this bug back to where it should be.

Reproduced the bug (I think, though I'm doubting whether I moved the mouse across the top panel now...). The bug doesn't exist in Unity 7.4.5+16.04.20171201.3 so I think the fix works. I can't see any obvious regressions (fiddled around a bit with the lock screen), though switching accounts doesn't work properly after I installed `ubuntu-mate-desktop` so maybe I can't test as thoroughly as someone with a clean system can.
