[arch-general] KDE and output to two monitors

from time to time I connect my laptop (1280x800) with another display 
(usually an old 19" at 1280x1024). My preferred configuration is to set 
both displays to their natural resolution with the laptop display being 
set to be "left of VGA1". I do this all via KDE system settings.

It always used to make the KDE panel and all windows stay on my laptop 
display, until I grabbed a window and moved it rightwards. However, 
since a couple of days or weeks ago (unfortunately I'm not sure which 
upgrade changed this) no matter what I do the KDE panel appears on the 
external display, so does my wallpaper and so do some of the windows 
(most, but not all of them). This doesn't really work for me much, does 
anyone know what to do to return to the previous behavior?
