Bug Description

I have a Samsung Series 7 Slate tablet. Through the HDMI connector on the dock, I connect an external monitor to make a dual-screen setup. The tablet screen (LVDS1) is to the left of the external monitor (HDMI1). The screen layout is attached.

I found the touchscreen does not work with this set up. When touch the tablet screen, the cursor is mapped to the external monitor instead of the tablet screen. This makes the touchscreen unusable. Making the external to the left of LVDS1 results in the same - only the cursor on HDMI1 is controlled by the touchscreen on LVDS1.

My xinput list output is listed below:
