I'm having a hard time figuring out how this could be a release blocker.

Comment 2 Robert Lightfoot 2010-05-11 03:05:51 UTC
I'll defer to those more experienced than I but wanted to raise a flag that Dual Monitor performance in F13 was significantly different than F12.  If be design then not an issue.  If by "accident" but acceptable to the majority then also not a blocker.  If going to cause discomfort and mis-understanding among the masses then definitely worth discussing.

Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2010-05-11 09:31:27 UTC
the masses don't have dual monitors, for one thing, and are probably liable to realize that if they _do_, stuff might be on the other. there's no reason to consider this a blocker.

Livable for me based on Adam's feedback - I concur should not be classified a blocker.
