F13: Dual Monitors - Apps starting in wrong screen

My setup is a laptop running Fedora 13 with a monitor attached as the 
second display.  When I start applications in full screen mode, they 
always are starting on the laptop screen even though the mouse is on the 
second display.  This is different behavior from Fedora 12 where the 
application always started in the display that held the mouse cursor.

Sometimes, a program will start in the second display and then flip to 
the laptop screen within a couple of seconds.

If I use the middle right hand button in the title bar to reduce the 
size (un-maximize), the application reduces size and appears in the 
display where the mouse was when the application started, the second 
monitor.  Maximizing the program size results in the program maximize in 
the second monitor.

Is this a change in behavior between Fedora 12- and Fedora 13?  Or, do I 
have a configuration issue?

Laptop:             Toshiba Satellite A305-S6825
Video Card:      Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated 
Graphics Controller
Video Driver:    i915

Laptop screen is configured as the primary display and the monitor is 
the secondary display.
