openjdk does not place windows properly on multi-monitor configration

Bug #228760 reported by Craig on 2008-05-09
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
openjdk-6 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

OpenJDK opens windows at the center of the entire desktop - not the center of the active screen as the window manager indicates. I believe openjdk needs to be compiled with xinerama support, or perhaps allow the window manager to place windows.

To reproduce, just run:
and watch the windows popup in between screens.
