Bug Description

I am using multiple monitors arranged as shown below:

+------------++------------+
|______3_____||______2_____|
|____________||____________|
+------------++------------+
   +---------+
   |____1____|
   |_________|
   +---------+

Monitors 1 and 3 have different resolutions (1920x1080 and 1600x900) and are arranged so that their right edges align.

When opening a drop down menu (such as the 'File' menu in terminal) that appears to the top left of a full-screen application on monitor 3, the drop down menu position is offset horizontally. It is as if menus that appear at the left of monitor 3 are 'pushed' to the right so that they are in line with monitor 1.

The attached screen capture shows roughly where the File menu drop down appears.

Menus on monitors 1 and 2 appear in the expected location.

I imagine this is a problem with GNOME 3, as I never had this problem with Unity on Ubuntu 16, and it seems to affect all applications.
