[xmonad] Google Chrome notifications and multiple monitors

I'm not sure if this is an XMonad or a Chrome issue, but here goes ...

I have a multi-monitor setup consisting of a laptop with an external
monitor. The external monitor is configured as the primary (via
xrandr) if it's attached.

Google Chrome is supposed to display it's transient notifications on
the primary monitor (see discussion here
irrespective of which monitor the main Chrome window is on itself.

That's the behaviour I want (browser on the laptop panel, transient
notifications on the primary external monitor). Unfortunately the
notifications always appear on the laptop panel and, to make matters
worse, they appear to flicker across the bottom of the primary monitor
before positioning themselves on laptop panel for display.

Has anyone else seen this behaviour? Any ideas how to diagnose and fix it?
