1) Thanks. Works like a charm.  They should make sure that it is clearly
documented somewhere -- or in several places.

2) Yes the question becomes how smoothly and logically you can get into
overview mode.  In a sense it is no different than when Gnome had
disappearing panels that reappeared when you hovered the mouse over

3) To make me content, at least for a short while, I would like to be
able to designate which workspace applications opened in in in the
startup file.  For example, I do a lot of writing.  When I login or
re-boot, I would like Firefox to be open in one workspace, evolution and
X-chat open in another workspace, and all my writing tools -- OOo
