Bug Description

I had super+l to lock the screen on my standard configuration. When I started using unity, that stopped working (doesn't trigger locking at all, as it's bound to the unity menu).

I switched to ctrl+super+l, and that works. Except the unity menu opens while locking the screen. So when I unlock the screen, I can see the unity menu is open. However, I can click through it. This is very confusing (I can see the unity menu open, and on top. But I can select menu's and drag windows under it).

The only way I've found to close it at that point is to use the super key to open and close it again.
