Yup, I've had this happen, too (20190303 snapshot).

Btw, if this happens to you in an RDP session on a machine in some rack
somewhere… do not lock the screen (either actively or through timer
expiration.  You will need a second account that can kill the first
session to recover.  INstead, you need to sign out at the first signs of
this occuring.

This makes me wonder what Windows does when you log out of your desktop
