1. Find the parent window of the one the right-click was done. If there
is one (if you're right clicking in explorer, then there definitely is),
use that window and center the dialogs on that window.
2. If there's no parent window found, use the default window position
(i.e. let windows decide where to put the window) and then remember that
position - the next time the dialog is started, that same position is
used (if no parent window is found either).

Ok, dual monitor system. Not something I have and therefore can't debug,
so I can't "fix" problems you might have there.

Sure it's possible. What I can't debug, I can't fix. And of course, I
don't see any problems with such setups because I don't have such a setup.

So, if you want this to have fixed, you can
1. debug and fix this yourself, then send us a patch
2. find someone else to do this
After all, this is an open source project ;)
