Is this still happening with the latest git master? Looks like some oddity with how GTK is reporting monitor sizes to us - was your right-hand monitor a secondary in that screenshot?

They're all supposed to appear on the same monitor too. So that. Even so, if your main window is appearing at nearly the full size of your first monitor (minus some borders), it can at least figure out some of the dimensions of your displays.

FWIW the code doesn't make any assumptions about monitors being aligned. I think perhaps we could try to be less "clever" with out-of-box initial window placement though, given that we don't show the subwindows by default any more.

If you are using multiple monitors in Windows 7 with a vertical offset between them, subwindow titlebars can appear off screen. See screenshot for an example.

To reproduce the problem:
1. Use screen resolution properties window in Windows to create a vertical offset between monitors.
2. Delete mypaint folder in Appdata to get the default layout settings.
When you launch mypaint it will automatically place the color sampler, color triangle and scratchpad as shown.
