Issue Report: Dual screens cause mouse input location problems
I have two displays, side-by-side. The Steam login window opens up near the left edge of the rightmost screen, and mouse input is shifted so that, for example, a click on the LOGIN button actually registers a click on the CANCEL button instead. The login window is not movable, but I can log in by using the tab key to select the LOGIN button and pressing enter.

Other windows have similar problems, but are movable if I can manage to register a click somewhere on the window title. Once moved, mouse input works correctly.

A poster in the thread mentioned a similar problem, but the original problem report in that thread sounded different so I figured I should start a new thread.

I fixed a bunch of multimon issues in the latest release - can you try this and let us know if it's still broken for you?

Sorry for the slow reply. This is definitely fixed. Thank you!
