[Geany] Question about multi-head display issues

Hi, all!

i'm quite certain that this is not a Geany bug, but more of a general
GTK-on-multi-head problem, but i'm guessing that one or two of you might
know a workaround...

On multi-head setups, bringing up the Search dialog (or similar) invariably
places it on the wrong monitor (i.e. a monitor other than the one geany's
main window is occupying).

Do any of you know of a GTK/Gnome/whoever option which can force dialogs to
be shown on the same monitor as their containing application?

The "virtual layout" of the monitors does not seem to affect the behaviour.
e.g. it doesn't seem to matter whether my main monitor is laid out to be
above/left/right/below of the other monitor.
