Bug Description

Terra Terminal Emulator does not support multiple monitors: it always shows up on my secondary monitor. It would be great if it would open on the currently active monitor or if there was an option in its preferences to select which monitor to use.

Also, probably because the lack of multi-monitor support, setting the window width to 48% and horizontal alignment "center", the window is not centered and not 48% as you can see in the screenshot: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/1113424/terra.png

Hey actually i can't fix this until today because i was on dorm and there is no monitor only laptops and i'm happy to fix this finally, I added Monitor selection combobox to prefences window you can select which monitor do you want to show terra or you can select "always use primary monitor".

And this is still in development, can be difference between window managers, I'm using mutter based gala and works great
