Bug Description

[Impact]
When opening a Quicklist while in Spread, the Quicklist and Launcher can sometimes be unusable. The Quicklist will be open, but it doesn't accept clicks nor does the Launcher. In order to clear out this condition, I enter keynav mode for the Launcher.

[Test case]
1. Open multiple windows for an application
2. Spread the application by clicking in the launcher icon (once or twice,
   depends whether it was focused before)
3. Right-click the launcher icon, to open the quicklist
4. Quicklist should work normally and so the launcher. Accepting clicks.ù

[Regression Potential]
Quicklist might not be opened on right-click
