	Err, I don't know whether it is a bug in libwnck. I've just
diffed the old (working) workspace-grid.jl from my (patched) RH9 system
with the FC1 one, and found this patchlet. Applying this fixes the
problem for me. I did not write the patch nor the comment above.
I have no idea what libwnck is :-)

	OK, thanks, I'll look at it.
