VLC missing title bar and window decorations on Fedora 27

Recently, VLC Media Player on my Fedora 27 installation running the Cinnamon desktop has been missing the title bar and window decorations, resulting in VLC not being a proper window and only a full-screen application. For me, this behavior is undesirable.

VLC without title bar

To restore normal functionality it’s easiest to simply delete the VLC configuration:

rm -r ~/.config/vlc

Now, VLC will function normally. Preferences will have to be recreated, but if you’re like me, you don’t need much more than the ability to play media.
