Sorry to report that it doesn't make any odds for me. I'm using 2.4 with 
your previous and this patch applied.

If git master is recommended I can try that one.

For completeness, I had good success with the original instruction of 
reverting the problem commit 37848925c4557385f154443ffbb917a8203506f8 if 
that in some way aids your debugging.

My typical tests are to click on a link in thunderbird to open firefox. 
Another easy way is to trigger a libnotify popup.

As noted earlier it's GTK apps only that do this and I appreciate there 
are limitations in the randr API in this respect. I'm sure it's solvable 
somehow for clever folks like your good selves :D
