When you enter the home screen edit mode (where you close or rearrange application covers) by holding your finger on the screen for a second, releasing your finger and then, whist the edit mode is still in effect, swiping up on the screen to open the application launcher, the edit mode is closed, but the zoom effect that occurs when opening an application or when peeking from inside an application is lost and the application covers stay stuck in their position. If you swipe up from the bottom to open the application launcher when you're in the home screen edit mode, the zoom effect still works.

Opening or closing applications so you get more than four or less than five active covers respectively has no effect on the zoom effect. The only way to get the zoom effect back is by restarting lipstick, or by entering and exiting the home screen edit mode again.

100% reproducible.

This has been partly fixed, now it seems like it only happens with specific amounts of visible covers.

I haven't noticed this happening for a long time now, so I'm closing the question as fixed.

Of course, it just happened again, so reopening the question.

Found a way to reproduce this every time: open two applications, then trigger the homescreen edit mode by holding your finger on the screen for a second. Then, without lifting your finger, swipe up. The application launcher will be opened, and the covers will lose their zoom effect.
