screenRect and screenLoc weirdness

I was merely using that as an example. In my app I too place a toolbar in the topLeft corner of the screen by setting the topLeft of the stack to 0,0. On a single screen setup it works fine. But I've just discovered that on a multi-monitor setup as I've described, the toolbar isn’t even visible it’s so far off. So in this case 0,0 is not the top left corner of the main monitor. How so I arrive at that point? How do I determine the actual middle of the screen? Since I don’t understand all the dynamics of how these things are being determined I have not been able to arrive at a work-around to place things where I’d like them on the screen.

I understand that I can type something into the message box to relocate them, but how is this not a bug??
