Description Paul Dickson 2006-08-05 19:26:11 EDT
Description of problem:
When starting a Gnome session from gdm, all terminal windows and other programs
 are placed in the current workspace (you can flip workspaces while the session
is starting and leave programs in the then current workspace).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to Gnome from GDM.
Actual results:
All windows appear in the current workspace.

Expected results:
Windows open in their saved workspace.

Additional info:
Reverting back to gnome-session-2.15.4-2 resolves the problem.

I bet this was broken by Soerens change to run the wm outside the session.
Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-08-09 15:01:07 EDT
yea probably.  So I think gnome-session has some hacks in it now to launch
compiz or metacity before starting the session.

That should be taken out, and instead, Soeren's wm switcher capplet should blow
away ~/.gnome2/session (after warning the user!) when switching wm's.
Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-08-12 01:16:17 EDT
can you report whether this is fixed in rawhide?  I pushed some changes that
should resovle this i think.
Comment 4 Paul Dickson 2006-08-12 23:26:21 EDT
It's fixed with gnome-session-2.15.90-3.fc6.
Comment 5 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-08-13 00:03:58 EDT
great.  It looks like my changes caused other problems (see bug 202312), but
those should be resolved, too, by tomorrow.
