So the problem occurs only with the second monitor plugged in?

And there is no problem in this case with 24.4?

The code was changed in two tranches

I'll CC him - maybe he can help us solving this issue in a more general

Do you mean that the value is already wrong for the primary monitor or
that the value simply does not account for the second monitor?

In any case we have to change ediff-wind.el in order to fix the issue at
