I am tearing my hair out with this as I normally use about four different
desktops at a time.
I've now changed the default window manager from Sawfish to Enlightenment
(which I'm sure was my default before). I can now get 2x2 windows, but again
the properties do not change the settings. So although this is an adequate
workaround, the bug is still there.
There's one other report of this for 7.1, but I haven't seen any reports in 7.2.
