    Screen position wrong for popups/modals/alerts since latest update


    I have a really weird (and annoying!) issue that has cropped up since the latest update.

    I'm on the latest Win10, with a 3 screen setup. For some reason the popups/modals/alerts have started showing up on the screen where the actual program is not!

    Here are some example screenshots:

    1) This one I just rebooted the server, so WinSCP is trying to reconnect. You can see the WinSCP program on the right screen. Then the middle screen I get the alert telling me its disconnected and wants to reconnect. This used to show up on the same screen as the program:

    2) This one I just made a dummy document in GIMP, and then went to close it. As expected, it asks if I want to save. The only problem is that the alert shows up on another screen.

    3) This is trying to create a new document in GIMP. Again, the popup shows on the wrong screen. It always used to open on top of the program.

    Has anyone else seen this behaviour? Its so frustrating, as I've had times when I'm trying to close a program down and it looks like its frozen. Turns out an alert came up on another screen, and I just didn't notice!
