[PD] Gem OSX Window Weirdness

When I work with OSX and create a gem window in the second monitor, the gem 
window is always a bit offset.
I then go in the display properties -> arangment and shake the icon 
representing the second monitor. 
Once the display properties is closed, the gem window is placed correctly in 
the screen.
That is weird.
