I am having the same problem on Mavericks, although my second display is in normal position (landscape). And for me this issue happens for both Safari and Mail apps. I am also interested how to fix this.

I have also noticed issues with XCode - if I have a storyboard on one monitor and the class file on another, dragging from the Storyboard to the class file to create a link brings up the connection prompt OFF SCREEN on the first monitor...this effectively disables XCode for me until I move the entire XCode window enough to bring the connection dialogue on screen....then I have to reset the positions afterwards.
In short - connecting in this way is rendered useless in Mavericks on dual mnitors for me.

First you need to create a second Desktop on one of the displays, and then right click the Dock icon of the application that you want to assign to the second display, choose "Assign to" and then choose the desired display. Then you can remove the extra added Desktop if not needed anymore.

Would have been nice if they'd made a tip about the new options. I almost never right-click a dock icon. I never need to, normally. I was looking in the preferences for Safari and even System for that.
Thank you for the tip. Now I'll look and see what other options are hidden away down there.

Click hold is all you need.

None of these explain my original issue tho - which is that Safari consistently draws off the screen on a new open (as per the screen shots) and XCode's modal behaviour draws off screen, regardless of what I assign and where!
I may very well cry...or at least moan a little bit about it on an internet forum...

I can't say I have an answer for you, Outy, but here's something to consider that may help you fix it.
Previously, when I had a vaguely similar issue, I discovered that the applications at fault were looking for a different screen resolution--for instance looking for native resolution when I had the screen set for about half that. As a result, the window pin point was well off to the side of the screen and, in my case off both the top and the bottom. My only first step towards fixing it was to change the screen resolution, move the window and re-pin it to the desire location before reverting the resolution back to where I needed it.
I don't know if this would help in your case, but it might be a start in resolving it.

That actually seems to have worked!
Sounds exactly like that's what is happening - because I have 270deg rotation on my 2nd display, Safari is clearly trying to generate at a point on screen that is ignoring the rotation setting.
I followed your steps and this Safari window that I am typing in now, regenerated in the correct way (maximized but not full screen on display 2 with 270deg rotation)

Hi, thanks for this discussion. I can tell we are/were having the same exact problem:
-my second display is smaller than my main display.
-i have assigned many apps to open on the second display with Dock > Options > Assign to Display 2
-mavericks is remembering the apps opening on display 2 as if their space had the resolution of the main display at 1680x1050, even though it only has a resolution of the second display at 1280x1024.
David, I've tried to change resolutions in Sys Pref > Displays, but 'scaled resolution' options are limited, i cannot get the 2 monitors to match.

Unfortunately I am having the exact same issue with some of the windows (i.e. Safari). Although, I noticed that some of the application which are not built-in in Mavericks open in the correct window size. Have you found any solution for this problem?

Nope - my only resolution was to change the way I had my monitors (I have one in portrait and one in landscape) so that that Safari used the landscape one instead - essentially I resolved my issue by NOT putting the windows where I wanted them.
