Description of problem:
In the workplace switcher changing the name of a workspace from the default only
works for the current session. When you log out and then log back in all
workspaces revert to the default names "Workspace 1"...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Change workspace name in Workplace Switcher preferences.
2.Log out/Log back in
Actual Results: All workspace names revert to the default names upon logout.
Expected Results: The name changes should persist.
Which window manager?
Default install. Gnome/Sawfish I would guess.
This seems to be quite a 'common' problem as I have it on all machines that I
set up (using gnome2 and metacity, pretty default setup).
I have this fixed in latest CVS libwnck/metacity/gnome-panel, in 2.1.x
Should work with rawhide.
This is still a problem in Red Hat 9. :(

This is strange. I just tested in rawhide, and it works for me.
Is there a fix for this? I have the same problem under RH9.
This was definitely fixed in Fedora Core 1
This is still a problem in RH9 - Linux localhost.localdomain
