logout dialog window opened on wrong screen

Bug #282857 reported by TobiasDomhan on 2008-10-13
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-session (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-session

== Regression details ==
Discovered in version:2.24.0
Last known good version:2.22.0

I am using 2 monitors that are on 2 different x screens, without Xinerama.

when I try to log out or try to shut down the opening window is always opened on the first screen, no matter if I use System->Log Out on the panel of the first screen or on the panel of the second screen.(same applies for System->Shut down)
It's the same with the Log Out applet. If I click on this the dialog is opened on the first screen no matter what.
This wasn't a issue in gnome 2.22 -> regression!

kernel: 2.6.27-4-generic
Ubuntu: Intrepid(8.10)
Gnome: 2.24.0
my video driver is:
  Installed: 173.14.12-1-0ubuntu3
  Candidate: 173.14.12-1-0ubuntu3

  Installed: 2.24.0-0ubuntu1
  Candidate: 2.24.0-0ubuntu1

the dialog looks different and has been split into two dialogs, though the dialog was there.
System->Quit opens a dialog on the right display in hardy.

The issue should be fixed in the current Ubuntu version with indicator-session, the gnome-session dialog is not used anymore there
