      Ha - that's a good one. Would you mind filing a bug report about this? DesktopApplicationContext should probably try to detect and correct this condition, if possible.

      In the meantime, try passing --x=0 and --y=0 as command line arguments to your app. That should move it back onto your main screen. Let me know if that doesn't work.
