I run a Dell laptop plugged into a docking station with
a second screen attached, so I can double screen space
to 1680 x 2074, the second screen above the laptop.
When docked, I run RSSBandit in the second screen.
However, unless I move it to the laptop screen before I
undock it, RSSBandit gets lost in the
no-longer-attached second screen when I try to run it
while the laptop is undocked. The only way to 'find'
the window is to right click the toolbar icon and
select 'maximize'. Restorign it back to 'original size'
also sends it back to the invisible second screen.

    I have the same setup. However, I don't see this as a bug of
    RSSBANDIT. What you observed happens with most
    applications, and therefore is more of an issue with Windows
    than with the app.

    One way to deal with this is to right click on the Taskbar Icon
    and select MOVE. Then hit any arrow key with your
    keyboard. Now move your mouse to bring the window back
    to your main screen and click your mouse to release the lock
    on your mouse.

    Hope that helps.

    crashr, you see I think it is something that can be fixed
    though. There are enough apps that are intelligent enough to
    realise that the second screen is not present and display on
    the primary screen to indicate to me that there's no reason
    why rssbandit shouldn't be able to do the same.
