it will look visually odd to have a dialog "centered" on the screen using 
anything but the physical extent of the whole screen geometry. what ought to 
be done is to ensure that the calculation made based on screen geometry 
doesn't cause overlap due to a smaller available geometry. in that case the 
dialog should be shifted/resized to compensate.
