Description Rick Niles 2009-07-06 12:07:51 EDT
Description of problem:
Gnome terminal start on screen :0.0 even when started from screen :0.1.  If one forces the terminal to screen :0.1 via a command line option, the terminal will start on :0.1.  This behaviour has only been seen with Fedora 11, it was not present in Fedora 10.   

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Run X with two screens.  I'm using an NVidia card on a Dell laptop.  Attempt to start a gnome-terminal on screen 1. 
Actual results:
 It will appear on screen 0 unless you force to screen 0 with command line options.

Expected results:
A terminal should start on the same screen it was created from.

Additional info:
This bug may affect other programs other than gnome-terminal.
Comment 1 Rick Niles 2009-07-06 15:16:50 EDT
After some more testing I realize this problem only occurs when I start it from the gnome-panel on screen 1.  That is, if I actually type "gnome-terminal" in a gnome-terminal on screen 1, it does indeed appear on screen 1.  However, if I use the gnome-panel on screen 1, it appears on screen 0.

I also noticed that a number of the gnome-games launched from the panel on screen 1 will appear on screen 0.  Therefore this bug is not just with gnome-terminal.

Therefore, perhaps this bug should be reassigned to gnome-panel.
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2010-04-27 11:30:48 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '11'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2010-06-28 09:29:59 EDT
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
