Why does daisy-chaining a Mini-DisplayPort monitor in a Thunderbolt chain cause overscan issues?

I have the awkward 2011 MacBook Pro with a single Thunderbolt port and no USB3.  I very frequently use it connected to my HP 2311x LED Monitor.  For the very first time, today I placed a external Thunderbolt drive in-between my MacBook Pro and the HP 2311x.  This causes the image to severely overscan.  Correcting it by using the underscan option in the display settings significantly reduces image quality.
