Mavericks Multiple Screens vs Jumping Dock


When working with Dual/Multiple Screens in OS X Mavericks and having “Displays have separate spaces” switched on, I noticed that the dock would unpredictably switch monitors from time to time.

It’s a handy shortcut, but if you don’t know about it it’s very confusing.
