The main-monior-only feature has been true for years. [  2.0,    I  
think ]
My solution for a dual screen capture is to move the stack to the main  
monitor, snap, then move back.
There were a few other tricks I used waaaay back then, as I was using  
3 monitors on my Mac G5 Dual tower.

Browser screen capture was to set the target window on the main monitor.
