Does it magically start working if you restart KWin or the system? If so it might be the same as Bug 448385, and we should re-open it and investigate.

I re-checked it and it works now. Esc to close and Meta + W to open and close works. There were no updates to KWin in my distro since this bug report was made.

It's a semi-random heisenbug, unfortunately.

I've got a very similar bug: I can open and close overview using Meta+W, but if I set another keyboard shortcut to open the overview (in my case Alt+W), I can't use it to close it afterwards, and only Meta+W works for that purpose, as if it was hardcoded. In all cases, the escape key does not close the overview, which is problematic. Should I file another bug for that? Using Kubuntu with KDE backports, plasmashell 5.24.0
