|Summary||06510: SDL2: -screen option not working for first display (of two)|
Hardware setup is dual monitor - Mame is directed to either monitor.
numscreens is set to 1 (Multiple outputs is not the objective).
When directed to the second monitor, Everything is working as expected - The display appears on the second monitor.
When directed to the first monitor, The display appears "On the monitor the mouse is located".
This behaviour also occurs when -screen option is set to default "auto"
Using -screen or -screen0 produces the same result.
Using fullscreen or window produces the same result.

Using SDLMAME 0.183 with Linux Mint 18.1, kernel 4.8 and NVIDIA proprietary drivers, I've confirmed that an invalid target screen does not throw an exception as it should.
I was unable to reproduce the screen0 issue. That doesn't mean it doesn't exist; however I can't extend displays under my current setup, only mirror them, so I can't say for sure.
