Wayland: Windows reset when reloaded on a multi-monitor configuration #100276
Tested in gnome-shell with
- Open blender (
- Create a new main window.
- Move it onto a second monitor.
- Save the blend file.
- Re-open the blend file.
- Both windows are on the same monitor.
When both windows are full-screen the windows are assigned separate monitors, although the order may be swapped.
Wayland doesn't support absolute window positions, which is used by other platforms to ensure windows open on the correct monitor. Nevertheless uses will it likely expect this functionality to remain supported (we've had reports whenever this functionality fails on other platforms #34962 for e.g.).
I've mailed the wayland-devel list to check if this is something that could be supported: https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/wayland-devel/2022-August/042326.html
