Expected, not-a-bug. Unfortunately, mirroring involved a lot of
complex maneuvering that led to several other bugs, and very slow
performance.

I took the executive decision to have it only displayed on the
external display, which can be awkward, but works faster and more
consistently.

You can see for yourself all the glitches and bugs discussed and
battled in https://dev.laptop.org/ticket/10210 when we used Xephyr for
mirroring.
