Description Matt 2012-05-23 15:25:54 UTC
My system has two monitors, primary to the right, secondary to the left. Running MD in the primary. The debugger inspection windows that come up when hovering during a debug session often appear in the secondary window. I see a number of similar bugs all marked fixed but this is happening to me in a new build:

Comment 1 Jeffrey Stedfast 2012-05-25 13:23:52 UTC
It would help if you could add some debugging to  monodevelop/main/src/core/Mono.Texteditor/Mono.TextEditor/Gui/TextEditor.cs in the DoShowTooltip() method.

See if you can figure out where things are going wrong.
Comment 2 Matt 2012-06-21 16:10:09 UTC

It does not happen with sufficient regularity to do that. I would say about 10% of the time the tooltip appears on the other monitor.
