Interesting. In any case this seems to be a Chrome (mis?)feature; my
XFCE+xmonad setup has the systray at the top, and chromium-browser also
shows the flickering at the bottom before deciding where to place
notifications. (I rather wish it would just use system notifications.
Although then it's probably use the craptacular built-in thing on Mountain
Lion instead of Growl, sigh.)

BTW, is the external monitor actually configured as primary via xrandr, or
is it "primary" only by usage?
