[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#357409: xfce4-terminal: doesn't work properly with multi-head configs

Package: xfce4-terminal
Version: 0.2.4-7
Severity: important

In a non-Xinerama multi-head configuration, xfce4-terminal thinks it's running on
the second head, regardless of which head it is initially started from.  For
instance, if it's launched from the first head (:0.0) then it runs on the first
head, but $DISPLAY shows as being :0.1.  This is not just a cosmetic issue, as 
launching an X app from a terminal on the first head causes the X app to display 
on the second head.  However, using the menu bar or right clicking on 
"Open Terminal" from a terminal on the first head will cause a new terminal window
to appear on the first head.

This problem makes xfce4-terminal unusable in multi-head configurations if you intend
to launch X apps from it.  It should be noted that gnome-terminal running under the
same XFCE4 session does not have this problem.
