"My" popup wasn't displayed at 0,0; it was displayed near the center
(but a little bit east and south of it) of the primary head.

FWIW, if I move the popup to the right workspace (and thus head) once
manually, then subsequent popups show up on the right head.  (Or do they
show up in the right workspace?  I didn't try to switch workspaces
between invoking the popup and the window appearing.)
