[TSVN] Where are TSVN windows placed?

Hi,

is there any policy that determines where TSVN places its windows?

I am somewhat surprised by the behaviour on my machine - windows seem to be popping up in somewhat unexplicable places?

Let me provide some details:

Hardware environment: Notebook with ATI Radeon chip, built-in LCD with 1024x768 pixels; additional external display with 1600x1200 pixels.

Software environment: Windows XP SP2, latest "unofficial" Omega drivers for the ATI card, TSVN 1.2.4 build 4479 (32 bit).

This environment is set up such that both displays are configured to create a unified desktop (1024x768 on the left hand side, 1600x1200 right hand side, top-aligned).

Example steps: Move the mouse cursor to the very right of the multi-monitor desktop - effectively to position (1024 + 1600), 10. Right-click on Desktop to invoke context menu, then bring up the TSVN Repository Browser.

Result: The "URL" dialog of the Repository Browser is shown centered on the *left* monitor?

Expectation: "URL" dialog of the Repository Browser is shown (at least) on the right monitor - i.e. on the screen where I right-clicked.

This behaviour is getting even more interesting with "SVN Checkout" - follow the same steps as above, but now see the Checkout dialog show up not in the upper right corner of the virtual desktop (i.e. the upper right corner of the right screen), but in the lower right corner of the left screen.

Is it possible that my multi-monitor setup confuses TortoiseSVN?

Best regards
Stefan
