In a multi-monitors environment, the pulldown menu appears only in the primary monitor (for googleearth) or do not appear at all if the application is on the second monitor for qt4 apps (it seems that other apps are unaffected including qt3 apps, example: qt-config, vlc, texmaker). This bug is not present in 1.2 series. By recompiling old version of the 1.3 series, I have seen that all works fine up to 1.3.3 with 1.3.4pre1 being the first version affected.

I have seen that this bug has been reported upstream:

Additional info:
* package version(s)


* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:

Take two monitors launch qtconfig and drag it on the second monitor. Press a menu item (File, for example). No menu is shown.

This patch fixes the issue: . (I have submitted it upstream: ). As I said in the upstream report, it was inspired by the corresponding solution for awesome. It remove support for _NET_WORKAERA that apperas to conflict with xinerama. I am not sure it is the best solution but everything seems to run fine.
