Description Paul Henderson 2008-06-23 17:41:14 UTC
Description of problem:
I recently upgraded my desktop system from RHEL3 to RHEL5. The system has dual
monitors, each independent of each other (I am not using the Xinerama
extension). This problem is a regression from RHEL3 to 5.

When I bring up the gnome background menu (by clicking anywhere on the
background), I get a menu that says:
Create Folder...
Create Launcher...
Create Document...
Open Terminal...
When I click on "Open Terminal...", on either screen, it appears on the first
screen ONLY. If I click on Open Terminal on the left screen, it should appear on
the left screen. But it appears on the right screen. If I click Open Terminal on
the right screen, it appears as it should on the right screen.
This functionality worked properly in RHEL3, so it is a regression in
functionality in RHEL5.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Linux 2.6.18-53.1.14.el5PAE #1 SMP Tue Feb 19 07:32:39 EST 2008
i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

How reproducible:
Very easy.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. right click on the desktop background.
2. select Open Terminal in either the left or right screens.
3. the terminal window always opens on the right screen.
Actual results:
the terminal window always opens on the right screen.

Expected results:
the terminal window should open on the screen on which the desktop background
menu was opened.
