Bug Description

Setup: two monitors side-by-side nvidia-current/nvidia-settings "twinview" enabled

Open a search box on the secondary monitor (in my case the one on the right) find an application and launch it and it will appear on the primary monitor (in my case the one on the left).

This is different than clicking launcher icons and having the app appear on the same monitor as the launcher icon.

Seems like a Unity bug since, as you've mentioned already, this doesn't occur if you start an app using it's launcher icon.
