Default Apply Watch Unlock / DisplayLink / Screen Sharing

I have found that sometimes, when my mac is hooked to my DisplayLink monitor, the automatic-unlock function with the Apple Watch no longer works.

I get a prompt at the login like this:

"Unlocking with Apple Watch is not available while your screen is being shared"

I believe that this is because the DisplayLink driver is somehow causing the Mac to think screensharing is turned on -- as I know I don't have any other screen shares active. If I disconnect the usb display prior, Apple Watch unlock seems to work again.

I just want to know if anyone else is seeing this, and if my assumption is correct. This is not a huge deal to me, as the monitor works for me and that's more important. But if its not DisplayLink driver causing it, I want to go investigate what else it could be. IE, I'd just rather know for sure than to guess or assume.

I can confirm that I have identical behaviour with Apple Watch.

This was when running release 4.3 beta 6 on a 2018 MacBook Pro. I also had problems viewing any content from YouTube or sites with video such as BBC News where the video would simply freeze on the first frame.

All problems were fixed by removing the Displaylink software. Now waiting for the fix for 2018 MacBooks if it ever comes.

I am also experiencing this behavior. I figure it will be ignored by DisplayLink just like every other issue.
