Lightroom 5 Bug: After using the "Compare" module with 2 screens, 2 images remain selected even when only 1 is shown selected

In Lightroom 5, there is a major bug after using the "Compare" module with 2 screens (second display enabled). After using the Compare module, even though only one image is selected in both the grid view and the thumbnail strip, 2 images remain selected. Any operation applied to what seems like 1 image is actually getting applied to 2 images. This gets saved to the catalog and happens across app restarts!

I eventually found this workaround: disable the second display, mess around with grid and settings until Lightroom is convinced you really only have 1 photo selected, then proceed. If you enable the second display again, it will immediately jump to the Compare module on the second screen, even if that was not the last module used on that screen. Majorly buggy...definitely wasn’t there in the LR5 beta.
