The first part of your message is missing... I'll try to answer based on
what I did get which is quoted above.

I'm surprised if you were getting the anchored toolbar to run all the way
across your second monitor previously.  I seem to remember testing this out a
while back (prior to 10.3.5) to see how far the toolbar went and I'm pretty
sure it only went to the edge of the main screen.

The reason we added the ability to make the toolbar a floating window is
because the anchored toolbar was wasting a lot of real estate on large
monitors (like a 23" cinema display).  I'll look into adding a growbox to the
floating toolbar so that you can resize it.
