I like it a lot. Without it current multihead is basically broken, if you 
change a file in one desktop the others won't be updated at all. Of 
course, I don't have a multihead setup, so I don't care about it not being 
useable. :)

The question is, do we consider this a bugfix or a feature addition? 
Personally I lean towards considering it a bugfix, but maybe we should ask 
the release team what they think.

(I did a quick review of the patch, and it seems ok to me. If it goes in I 
need to take a closer look though.)
