Default Serious MultiMonitor bug (window vanishes)

Hi, I really like this player but have discovered a really nasty multimonitor bug.

If I play a movie my main monitor it works fine, when I play it on the second monitor the window vanishes (the whole window, picture, windowframe and all) and I can't get it back though sound continues to play.

The problem only occurrs if the second monitor is set (in the display control panel) to be to the LEFT of the main monitor. If you put the second monitor to the RIGHT of the main one it will work fine.

I think the problem is caused by the monitor having negative window coordinates. Windows puts the 0,0 position in the corner of the main monitor so if you have a second monitor to the left of the main one, the coordinates of windows on that monitor will be negative.

I have an Nvidia GEforce 4600 card with multimon support (two VGA monitors attached). Latest drivers, Windows XP with all patches, latest DIVX and build 501 of bsplayer. I'm running in "force rgb" mode.
