When a Transition component never reaches the exited state in React 18

After upgrading to React 18, I ran into an issue where a Transition component would never reach the exited state. Specifically it happens when navigating to a new route whose components were loaded using Suspense and React.lazy.

As is typical, I found someone else facing a very similar issue, but no workaround or fix was posted.

For me the answer was to give the Transition component a unique key prop, e.g.

const Example = () => {
  // Pull a key from Reach Router
  const { key } = useLocation();

  return (
      // etc...

Et voila! The transitions work properly again.
