Description williamconley 2009-11-20 23:46:48 UTC
dual monitor setup with 19" (primary) left and 28" right. 

run netbeans on 28" full screen, then exit the app.

reopen - it will maximize on 19" left screen (bummer, but no big deal, just move it, right? LOL)

restore down - it will restore to a location too high to see menus or grab for drag-n-drop. Have to right click on app in menu bar and choose "move", then use arrow keys to slide it down to where I can grab it and push it back to the right window. (where it shoulda been in the first place.)

1) remember window it was on, not just "maxmize" (if possible)

2) do not "restore down" to a location where the menu bar is above the visible plane

(Go easy on me, i'm porting my brain from VS2008Pro!)

i can replicate the error with these steps at will, but i only have one setup like this on my Vista64 system here (no spare dual monitor systems with non-matching monitors to test it)

Guys, could you please help me put this into the right component?

Moving to platform for evaluation.
