Description of problem:
When logging into Gnome, the applications that had been open when I
logged out of Gnome restart in the wrong Workspaces. This is very
noticable to me since i try to keep a separate workspace for each
project that I am working on with their associated applications. I
can't seem to find a pattern to it, applications seem to re-open in
different workspaces each time. If I have time I'll try to experiment
more directly to see if I can find a clearer pattern.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Make sure that you haved multiple workspaces (I have four).
2.Open up multiple apps in different workspaces (Nautilus, gnome-term,etc)
3.Log out of Gnome
4.Re-log into Gnome
5.Observe what workspace the apps re-start in
Actual Results: Apps open up in the wrong workspaces
Expected Results: The should re-open in the same workspaces that they
were in when you logged out of gnome.
I just did a little experimentation and found that this behavior seems
to only happen when I reboot and not when I just logout and log back in.
in my case, it works well with Nautilus and Gnome-terminal,
but Evolution will be opened always in first workspace,
and totally not work with firefox :(
