Bug ID: 370917
           Summary: Plasma is putting newly opened windows on random
           Product: plasmashell
           Version: master
          Platform: Neon Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Multi-screen support

Laptop. KDE Neon 5.8.1 up-to-date, intel hd 3000 graphic card, open source

When I plug in second screen plasma is showing windows randomly on one of the
screens. Got two panels, one for each screen. Plasma is randomly showing newly
opened windows on one of screens. No matter from what panel I start an
application. No matter how I will start an application - for example from
kicker, konsole, whatever. No matter if I click on one of the screens to
'activate' it or make a current one. Same with 'under mouse' placement option -
it's not working. There is no logic in where plasma is putting newly opened

Only setting KWin rule to show windows on screen: 1 is working but if I want
every new application to be shown on primary I need to set '*' rule what makes
dialogs of applications currently on second screen be shown on first screen.
And without this rule dialogs will, in many cases, be shown on different screen
that parent currently us. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install plasma 5
2. Plug in second monitor
3. Open new application, window, dialog

Actual Results:  
Windows and dialogs are randomly distributed between screens.

Expected Results:  
To follow 'Under mouse' option.
Keep dialogs on same screen that parent is.
When application is opened from a panel to show that application on a screen
that panel belongs to.
