It's not an X bug.  X just presents the monitors, and actually tries
pretty hard to put them in a consistent order.  Gnome is the thing
that's flipping out here; gdm puts the login dialog on whichever head
initially contains the cursor, but then the panels show up on whichever
RANDR output is primary.  Primary-ness is initially unset, in which case
it picks the first one in the list.

But Gnome doesn't have any UI for picking the primary yet, let alone
propagating that to gdm.

And it's sort of tricky to define the right thing to do here at all.
About all you could say is that, whatever gdm picks, the session should
pick too; and that you should be able to pick one in the session and
then propagate that to gdm somehow.

At any rate, I'm like 93% sure it worked like this in F12 too.  If it
wasn't important enough to block F12...
