Btw, did you ever try gnome-terminal instead of xterm? Does it behave

I believe this is a design decision in the window manager.

Personally, I don't use this anyway. It is too slow, needs to many
clicks, and most importantly... Wants me to use the mouse. ;)

What I *do* use though, are keyboard shortcuts to move windows. I don't
recall if GNOME 2.6 supports this, but if so, you just need to have a
look at your Keyboard Shortcuts preferences -- assign keys, if they are
not by default. I got the option to define keys to directly move a
window to any workspace. And to switch to any workspace directly. Also I
got the options to switch workspaces left and right. And to move windows
the same...

The latter two actually are what I really do use often. Moving
workspaces left and and right -- and optionally, to take the active
window with me... Most useful to me. :)
