The window position is remembered and restored with the
SetWindowPlacement() API. But the docs for that API state:

"If the information specified in WINDOWPLACEMENT would result in a
window that is completely off the screen, the system will automatically
adjust the coordinates so that the window is visible, taking into
account changes in screen resolution and multiple monitor configuration."

which means that if your OS properly detected that the second monitor is
not there anymore, the window would not get restored on that monitor but
on the main monitor.

So I guess there was a problem with detecting that the monitor went missing.
