Bug description:
  Setup & problem:

  Laptop in docking station, external monitor connected via DisplayLink
  to the docking station

  Start the laptop with the lid closed as normal behaviour. External
  monitor works OK.

  Then I need a second screen so I open up the lid on the laptop.
  External monitor set to primary incl launcher.

  Then launcher is on external but desktop icons + all windows I had
  open is on secondary/laptop screen.

  I do not have this problem when I add a secondary screen via VGA
  directly to the laptop. It becomes secondary but is completely empty
  except for top panel.

  (uncertain if this is xorg problem or unity problem (or something
