Description of problem:
In the preferences of the workspace-switcher, when the box "Show workspace names
in the switcher" is checked, and when I'm editing workspace name, if I press the
"close" button, the new name for workspace is not validated. I have to edit
preferences again, press enter in text area for the name and then the applets
display the good name.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. right click on a panel -> add to panel -> Utility -> Workspace switcher.
2. right click on the workspace switcher -> preferences
3. check the box "Show workspace names in the switcher"
4. Add a new workspace
5. Name the workspace but dont press return/enter
6. Press the close button.


Actual Results:  The new workspace is still with the old name.

Expected Results:  The new name should have been validated

Additional info:

do right click on the workspace switcher -> preferences again.
press enter in the workspace name area and the new name appears in the applet.

I'm pretty sure I saw a fix for this in the upstream ChangeLog yesterday.
We should get it when we pull a new version.
