[Bug 792164] [NEW] Mouse can enter "no go" area of dual monitor setup

Binary package hint: nautilus

I will attach a diagram of my monitor layout.  The builtin monitor is
set to 1024x768.  The external monitor is set to 1920x1080 and is
positioned above the built-in.  The right hand edge of the two monitors
line up.  This leaves a rectangular "no go" area on the lower left,
where the mouse cursor should be unable to go.  However, it can enter
this area.

The Launcher appears on the built-in monitor.  However, it does not
appear when the mouse cursor reaches the left hand edge of the monitor.
One must continue moving the mouse cursor, through the "no go" area to
reach the left edge of the "no go" area before the Launcher appears.
Then, one must move the mouse cursor back to the right until it
reappears on the built-in monitor  and then get it back into the
Launcher before that disappears.

What I expect should happen is that the Launcher should appear when the
mouse cursor reaches the left edge of the built-in monitor.

With the mouse cursor in the external monitor, the Launcher appears when
the cursor reaches the left hand edge of the external monitor.  This is
reasonable.  This edge is also lined up with the left edge of the "no
go" area.

Another expectation I have that is not honored in this scenario is that
the mouse acts as though it enters this "no go" area.  See above about
having to move the mouse further left after it disappears off the left
edge of the built-in before the Launcher appears.  Another example is
that the mouse can be moved off the bottom edge of the external monitor
into the "no go" area.  One must then move the mouse significantly to
the right before it appears in the built-in monitor.
