Comment (by paul at andreassen.com.au):

 You've missed the point of the patch.  This patch doesn't change Xinerama
 at all.  Xinerama is when you are combining multiple monitors to provide
 one desktop and windows can move between monitors.  This patch only fix a
 bug for non Xinerama multiple monitors which have separate desktops and
 windows can't move between monitors.

 > Wouldn't it be possible to specify the screen you want the bounds
 calculated for as the "Xinerama screen"?

 Mythtv's Xinerama support already does this.  For people with disable
 Xinerama there is only the current display (primaryScreen).

 >Doesn't this limit you to putting the video on the same monitor as the

 This is all Mythtv supports, in my understanding.

 >I know I'm currently displaying video on a different monitor than the

 You have been using a bug/feature and can continue using it.
