restart the computer the default name 'Arbetsyta1' etc appears as workspace names.
The strange thing is that if I right click on an application for example mozilla
it says Move to Multimedia (Multimedia is the name I changed for 'Arbetsyta 1')

kernel 2.4.20-8 so I do not know if the problem appears there.

Expected Results: The workspace name that I changed before the the reboot

This should have been fixed in Fedora Core 1
