To reproduce

1.  debugger:start()
2.  Move Monitor window to secondary monitor (to LHS in my case)
3.  Module / Interpret  (choose module)
4.  Open Module View window
5.  It will crash as soon as there is a mouse move event with:

Error in process <0.2844.0> with exit value:

line is:

696     {coords, {gs:read(Win, x)+LastX-5, gs:read(Win, y)+LastY-5}};

Workaround:  Open the module view window before moving it to secondary
monitor, and then it won't crash.
