Apparently, Scintilla *has* multi monitor support. But no way in the mak
file to enable it. The only way to enable it is to patch the build
files. And of course, apart from going through the sourcecode there's no
way to find out about that 'feature'.

Can you try the next nightly build and check whether the issue is fixed?
If it is, I'll backport my build patch to the 1.5.x branch.
