Nexus 6 Android 7.1

I've been having an issue where I will hold the home button down to pull up search, tap on the search bar to bring up the keyboard, and within a few seconds the search bar clears itself and closes the keyboard.

I made a screen recording to show you the issue in action. The first instance I don't type anything, just wait, and it closes itself. The second time I starting typing and it happens again. So basically every time I open search I have to tap the search bar, wait for the keyboard to close, then tap the search bar again, then it works... until i need to search something else.

Here is the screen recording.

And here is a logcat of the crash.

12-03 10:01:36.449 824 1796 seems to be what it spits out when the keyboard actually closes.

Thanks in advance, this is driving me nuts.

It turns out that Nova Launcher is the culprit. Using another launcher fixed the issue for me.
