In that case, this is the wrong place. ;)

Seems like a design decision to me.

Also, please don't forget that we are talking about GNOME 2.0 and 2.6
here. Yes, there may be UI differences -- which do not necessarily mean
a bug, but deliberately changed behavior.

GNOME also used to ship with sawfish as the default window manager, at
some historic point in space time. ;-)

Seriously, this might explain some of these issues...

It is the "Move window one workspace to the right" keyboard shortcut
that I am talking about here. Moves the window, and switches to that

Also please note, that the shortcuts I mentioned are *relative*, rather
than absolute.


char *t="\10pse\0r\0dtu\0  ghno\x4e\xc8\x79\xf4\xab\x51\x8a\x10\xf4\xf4\xc4";
main(){ char h,m=h=*t++,*x=t+2*h,c,i,l=*x,s=0; for (i=0;i<l;i++){ i%8? c<<=1:
(c=*++x); c&128 && (s+=h); if (!(h>>=1)||!t[s+h]){ putchar(t[s]);h=m;s=0; }}}
