Description of problem:
workspace switching does not cycle between the workspaces any longer.
it did in rh8.
suppose you have 4 workspaces located as follows
if you start with workspace <1> and hit C-S-A-<left>, you should go to <4>, then
<3>, then <2>, then <1> - this is what happened in rh8.
now you just stay in <1>.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.go to workspace1
Actual Results: nothing happens
Expected Results: you switch to workspace4
doing nothing in response to a user action is no good.
it was better before when I could go from any workspace to any other workspace
in a single keystroke.
Done on purpose, for consistency with similar UI in other places, and so you can
"slam" to one side.
To move to any space with a single keystroke I personally use keybindings
such as Alt+1, Alt+2, Alt+3, etc. for specific spaces.
Anyway, if you want to read more text on this topic there are bugs
on bugzilla.gnome.org that go on forever.
this is NOT consistent because C-M-RIGHT on workspace<2>
DOES switch to workspace<3>.
if you want it to be consistent, you have to disable that too.
Are you using metacity 2.4.13 from rawhide? That issue should be fixed in 2.4.13.
I am using phoebe, not rawhide.
I upgraded metacity to 2.4.13 and indeed that fixed the bug.
thanks for testing
