    Both monitors use HDMI ports of the unique GC, and swapping the monitors doesn't solve the issue.
    Once the content has been swapped on boot, swapping the monitors (while powered, ouch!!!) doesn't change a thing. In fact, I have to wait for the same issue to happen again and... "voilą"... icons are back where they had to.

    It looks more like the monitors don't get detected in the same order on each boot (GC? OS device manager? Variable latency of Monitor PnP HW?).

    You would have wanted to swap the connections while everything is turned off instead.

    Did too... started with that actually, but the boot kept the monitors as swapped as they were.

    You need to connect them one at a time. The one that you want as No. 1, should be connected on initial boot. Shut down, completely, connect No. 2, and see if that helps. I have a system that I manage, and that's the procedure I followed, and it worked. It doesn't work on my home office though. Go figure! Just a thought....
