Description Vladimir Benes 2010-08-19 11:14:14 UTC
Description of problem:
I have dual head set up. On my primary screen I pressed shift+del and suddenly nothing happens as the second screen was off.. I searched what happened and saw some strange dialog in desktop switcher on second screen. That was the approval dialog. That is really annoying as the dialog should follow cursor as it is when opening a new app.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.press shift+del on directory at the primary screen in dual screen setup

Actual results:
approval dialog shows on the second (and possibly powered off) screen 

Expected results:
the dialog should show on the same screen as the cursor is
