Issue Report: Notifications may appear off screen in dual monitor setup
I have a dual monitor setup, 1680x1050 on the left, 1280x1024 on the right for a total virtual screen resolution of 2960x1050.

Notifications pop up in the bottom right most corner of the 2960x1050 screen, not the bottom right most corner of the 1280x1024 monitor. Thus notifications show up in the wrong place: 26 pixels too far down, partially cut off.

This may be a bit late, but I can confirm that I am also experiencing this problem.
I previously thought that it was something entirely different as I didn't have any notification whatsoever, but only recently discovered that this is not the case. My problem was that my secondary monitor is far smaller than my left; so much so, that I didn't even see any of it at all.

It wasn't until I decided to investigate any potential cause that I found out that this is indeed my issue, after I reconfigured my dual-screen layout.

Now, the main problem here is that the notifications should be displayed on the primary monitor, but like the bug on the Ubuntu NotifyOSD, it defaults to the right most display.
Any temporary workaround for this?
