Bug Description

Installed Natty from fresh yesterday and I now have the Notification Area on both of my monitors. I've attached a sudo lshw report if needed.

If this is a feature, can it be turned off? It seems unnecessary.

Notifications should only appear on the monitor where the pointer is currently positioned

Text from the specification:

"""
2.13. Notify OSD

Notifications appear on the display which currently has focus.

If the Presentation Mode option has been checked, then notifications will not be shown on any display, until the option is unchecked (from the Display Setup panel or from System Settings-User Interface), or until the user next logs in.

Closing as wontfix since the behavior is by design.

If for some reason you're seeing two notifications (one on each monitor), that would be a legitimate bug - in this case please file a new bug report using 'ubuntu-bug unity' and attach a screenshot that shows the problem.

On the other hand, if you are seeing the intended behavior but just want a configuration setting to change it to some other behavior, please file a new bug report (again, using 'ubuntu-bug unity') with a proposal for what to be added.
