I don't think that is the case here, as only the workspace chooser (and
also some other popups such as the one that allows me to enter a class
name to edit) appear on the "wrong" head.  The main window appears on
the currently focused head.

That is, if I choose a workspace in the workspace chooser, then switch
to another head, then the main window appears on the head I switched to.
