Xpra: Ticket #831: incorrect behaviour with multiple X screens

The xpra client appears to behave incorrectly when run in an X session with multiple X screens. Even though it is launched on the second screen (i.e. DISPLAY=:0.1), any pre-existing windows are opened on the first screen. New windows correctly appear on the second screen.

I only have a single screen attached to my computer right now, which makes this more difficult to test. I will try to get hold of a second one, and hope that setting it up with the nvidia drivers as Separate screens (classic X11) works ok.

Here's my xorg.conf, if it helps.

Please provide more information, I have just tested this with a simple xterm and it correctly showed up on whatever screen I started the client from. You can use the bug report tool to collect data, and maybe also include the -d metadata,screen client debug output.
