Workspace Switcher forgets number workspaces under sawfish

Description of problem:
When running the GNOME desktop with sawfish as the WM, I get one
workspace by default in the Workspace Switcher. I can easily change
this using Workspace Switcher Preferences to 4, say, but once I log out and then
back in again, it is back to 1. Checking "save current setup" when logging out
does not help. When using metacity, everything
works properly (the # of worspaces is remembered across logins).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run sawfish window manager under GNOME.
2. Set the number of workspaces to 4 using Workspace Switcher Preferences.
3. Log out
4. Log back in
Actual Results: Only 1 workspace in the Desktop Switcher applet.
Expected Results: 4 workspaces.
The Workspace Switcher functions properly, once the desired # workspaces has
been set (again!).
1. Don't use sawfish (metacity doesn't have this problem).
2. Fix the number of workspaces every time you log in (annoying).
