Bug Description

[ Impact ]

When multiple monitors are available but only a subset of them are enabled, the ubuntu's g-c-c panel still shows them all, giving the option to move the launcher to such monitor, even if that is not possible.

[ Test case ]

Run:
  env NO_AT_BRIDGE=1 HOME=/tmp/TEST_HOME \
      XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/tmp/.tmp-runtime-dir \
      XDG_SESSION_TYPE=wayland \
      MUTTER_DEBUG_NUM_DUMMY_MONITORS=3 \
      dbus-run-session gnome-shell --nested --wayland

From such nested window, use g-c-c display panel to disable one or multiple fake monitors.

Go in the Appearance panel
 - Only the enabled monitors should be visible in the "Show on" combo box

If only one monitor is enabled the combo box should not visible.
