So viewport-boundary-mode is set to either stop or wrap-around, and
(when using sawfish-pager) pager-show-all-workspaces is t?

I did turn up a bug by turning pager-show-all-workspaces to t -- the
pager seems to get confused about the locations of windows in other
workspaces.  They appear to move to match any shift of viewport in the
current workspace.  So if I move to the viewport below mine, the windows
in other workspaces shift one viewport down as well.  All windows seem
to move together, so their arrangement relative to each other never

Is this what you're seeing, or something different?  And if so, the
problem is the same with gnome-pager?

This problem seems to be due to changes I made for dynamic viewports.
Windows in other workspaces are no longer being shifted along with
windows in the current workspace when the viewport is shifted.  I'll
have to look into how the pager is generating its information.  And
gnome-pager is showing the same problem?  (I don't have gnome, so can't
test it.)

Are you giving the display option to emacs, or to emacsclient?  I use
the daemon as well, but haven't had any problems.  Are you sure that the
emacs daemon process itself has a properly set DISPLAY?

I haven't seen this either, and I can't think what might be causing it.
