Description of problem:
After creating a rule for an application under the settings for auto-move-windows, opening that application places it on the current workspace. Once you change to the workspace which was selected in the rule, the application will be there correctly.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open gnome-shell-extension-prefs.
2. Turn Auto Move Windows ON and click the settings gear.
3. Create a new rule for gnome-calculator to open in workspace 3.
4. Open calculator.
Actual results: It will open in the current workspace and be oddly greyed out.
Expected results: Calculator opens in workspace 3.
Additional info: This issue occurs during an X11 or Wayland session, classic or not.
This sounds like https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/mutter/issues/572, i.e. a compositor bug rather than an extension issue.
Yes, same issue.
Tested with multiple rules on different components, mutter-3.32.2-44.el8 seems to have fixed the issue I initially reported. I noticed no regressions or other issues while testing this extension as well.
