Bug Description

I'm using a twinview setup with a large screen on the left (the main one) and a smaller one on the right. I have a fullscreen app on each display.

There are several bugs resulting from this situation:

1. Only the focused window responds to global-menu hovers. To access the menu of the second app (on the other screen), you first have to focus it, which is pretty needless.

2. Clicking where the X button should be in the second global menu (top left corner) closes the first app (on the other screen!). This is pretty crazy especially since there isn't actually a button there.

3. Clicking on the global menu doesn't focus the window on that screen. You have to click somewhere inside the window.
