Issue Report: Bad window positioning on dual monitor setups
I run a setup with two monitors side by side (ATI card configured with "Multi-display desktop" in amdcccle). Steam tries to put all new dialog windows right at the center of the desktop. On my two monitor setup that means new dialogs pop up right between the two monitors with one half of the dialog on one monitor and the other half on the other. Steam should instead put it's dialog windows at the center of the current monitor, not the overall desktop.

I am running Xubuntu 12.10 with XFCE.

This sounds the same issue as the one from my report:

Same issue here with Nvidia Card[310.14-0ubuntu0.1] (Ubuntu 11.10, Gome 3.4). Each window appears in between both monitors. One exception is the friends tab which was located on the right monitor bottom.

Its worse with my setup. I have 3 monitors in the setup one main with a vertical stack of 2 monitors to the right side of the main. The steam window pops up at the intersection of the three, putting the top border of the window right on the seam. Meaning you can't use any of the menu functions, close, minimize, etc. Had to write a devilspie script to move the window on open to interact with it.
NVidia latest Mint 13 Cinnamon

Just a "me too" here, it splits the windows right across my two monitors.

Yup same here Linux Mint 14 with AMD 5850. If I get the game running on the one screen the other is kinda mirrored but corrupt. Game on screen 1680*1050 and corruption on my 1920*1080 multi-display desktop

I tried World of Goo and it split the game right across my monitors with black bars filling in on the sides.

Same happens to me. 2 monitors side by side. Pop-ups appear across the boundary of both screens. Also "Dungeons of Dredmor" in fullscreen take up both screens, centered across both displays.

I have the same issue. I'm planning to orient one of my monitors vertically (which would make the width of the virtual screen area narrower) and will post a followup with what I find out.

EDIT: Issue has disappeared after the most recent Steam client update. Thanks!
