Description Jan "Yenya" Kasprzak 2004-06-08 16:38:40 UTC
Description of problem:
When using Sawfish as GNOME window manager the click to the pager
applet moves to a different workspace, but it also moves windows so
that upper left corner of the screen is at the coordinates you clicked
in the workspace switcher applet. It makes the pager unusable (after
such action there is no way how to move the viewport back and access
the upper left part of screen.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run GNOME with sawfish window manager
2. open a few windows on different workspaces, possibly maximize
   some of them.
3. click to the pager applet to switch to a different workspace
Actual results:
displayed windows are moved towards (and behind) the upper left corner
of the screen.

Expected results:
The position of windows remain the same when workspaces are switched.

Additional info:
This is probably libwnck bug, documented in GNOME bugzilla:
I have made the RPMs using patch mentioned in the above bugzilla
entry, and it seems to fix the problem. Packages are available at
