  Cannot set right monitor as primary in dual monitor configuration

Bug description:
  Unity always considers the left monitor as the default/primary one when in a 
dual-monitor configuration. By this I mean that:
  - Desktop icons appear only on the left monitor
  - An opened app (eg libreoffice writer) is opened on the left screen, even if 
I launch it via the launcher on the right monitor

  The current configuration can be seen at

  The .config/monitors.xml file is shown below. Notice that the HDMI
  display (green in the photo) is set as    <primary>yes</primary>.
  Nevertheless, this seems to be ignored - the behaviour is the one
  mentioned above (desktop icons on the left and writer opening on the
  left) .

  <monitors version="1">
        <output name="VGA1">
        <output name="HDMI1">
        <output name="HDMI2">
        <output name="VIRTUAL1">
