Bug Description

When i have my second monitor plugged in, and use the alt+tab shortcut, one part of the popup is displayed on the left screen, and the other part is on the right screen. The same goes for the desktop switch popup.
I think the popups should both only display on the screen the user marked as main screen.

Hmm, I though that's been reported and fixed already.

OP, is this still happening as of the latest revision?

Latest revision - yes it still happens.

 Gala does not remember the location of windows( for example terminal window which was positioned top corner), after minimize and back it was centered.

Are there any examples without minimizing?

This will give you the rectangle of the primary monitor in dual screen setup (tested with twinview setup).
