I'm trying to transition from Gnome to XFCE and when I use Alt+TAB to cycle between windows, the list of windows shows on the wrong screen (I have an nvidia card with twinview spanning the desktop over an LCD and my TV.)

Can this be controlled? Ideally it would always display on the LCD only, failing that, can I disable it but keep Alt+TAB functional?

Recently installed a second screen here. Though I am using 12.04 - this is how it appears here with no intervention on my part.
