 > But the case of linear arrangement of screens can be solved. The only 
questions are whether it's necessary to  solve it to get the 
currently-broken applications fixed and if it is, how to detect the 
cases where we can and when to give up.

Just for the record: If you switch Windows to DPI awareness = 1 (system 
DPI aware) as opposed to Qt's default (2, per monitor DPI aware), you 
will also get screen arrangements with gaps from the system when 
differently sized monitors are connected.

So, Qt needs to deal  with that situation and I don't think we should be 
trying to rearrange screens.
