Renaming Member Variable Dialog Hidden on Non-Primary Monitor

With my good luck in getting attention to bug 7682 by posting to the forum (not that it's fixed, btw), I thought I'd try again with bugs 8285, 8298 and 8430.

Basically, the member variable rename dialog is hidden when VS (2003 at least) is run on a non-primary monitor. It started in one of the early 200 builds and is persisting in 209.

To test: Open VS on a second monitor, then right-click a class member (or the class itself), select refactor - rename (or just press F2).

The dialog is supposed to appear - it doesn't for me.

Even if the dialog is hidden, it still has focus, and the rename can be done, but you're flying blind.

Hello Oskar,

regarding 7682, I was too fast to declare that we found its reason. Most
likely the reason we found was not the
only possible reason. We continue investigating it.

I see the same thing (and it's driving me NUTS)...

One (annoying) workaround to get the dialog onscreen is, once you've pressed
F2, to then press ALT-SPACE --> Move, then press one of the arrow/cursor
keys, then position your mouse and click where you want to put the dialog...

OK - now this also applies to the Introduce Variable refactoring. I hope both will be fixed at the same time (both inheriting from the same bad base object?)
