Getting tomboy notes to appear on the correct monitor in Ubuntu

I’m using a dual monitor setup using multiple X sessions instead of a Xinerama ultra-wide desktop. This means that I can’t drag windows between monitors, but it allows me to change desktops on them independently.

I found that when I set up the Tomboy notes Gnome panel applet on my secondary monitor, the notes would always appear on my primary monitor. To fix it, I had to:

$ sudo emacs /usr/bin/tomboy-panel
# Add the following line before the final “exec mono” line:
export DISPLAY=:0.1

There’s probably a neater solution (ie. could we set this when the tomboy-panel script is invoked?), but this was enough for me.
