when using dillo with tabs, when closing it will show a popup requesting permission to close. this popup is configures to show on one screen, but always show up on the other screen.

i'm using fltk 1.3 svn 9180  and dillo3, hg version d35a120ef07b.
my window manager is the fluxbox 1.3.2 and i use 2 screens, where my main screen is the righ one.

in the past, it worked fine, so i bisect dillo and found that dillo
changeset 2104:4ea703ed7f15 ( made the windows "locked" in my left screen. reverting it i can control the window placement.

the problem is that dillo have other window like that and dont have that problem. also, running the fltk tests i dont see that problem in any of then.

i have posted more info to the dillo list:

but nothing else useful was found... so i'm trying if the problem comes from fltk side

Any update on this?

I know Manolo did a pile of good work in sorting out how the screen and work areas are computed, but I wonder if the effect you are seeing might be a side-effect of that in some way?

Don't know what rev Manolo's changes went in at, be interesting to see if the overlap the range you se the "feature" appearing in...

Any further updates on this, or is this something we can close?

There has been no more feedback on this issue, nor related reports, for some time (well, about 3 years) so I'm inclined to close for now.

If there's still  fault, please re-open.
