Now that finally docking seems to be fully supported on my system, hurray!, I can address a relatively minor issue (or even a bug ?):

Normally, I have (all) four workspaces populated with my standard applications. Whenever I dock back into my docking-station (e.g. from standby-mode), all the open applications from separate workspaces land on a single -- the one "active" whilst re-docking -- workspace.

"Fixing" that, i.e., getting my stuff back in the correct order and every application back into its respective and pre-ordained workspace, takes me about 5 - 10 seconds, so I can live with that... but clearly it's sub-ideal.

Any comments & help much appreciated.

I haven't yet tried… or… but both would constitute more of a work-around than a real fix for what may be considered a bug... – nutty about natty Feb 8 '13 at 10:40
I might have to edit the question (again): it's not necessarily just one workspace on which all applications land on; rather, it sometimes (?) also happens that some applications land on one workspace, others on another. The bottom line: there's significant workspace <-> application re-shuffling... – nutty about natty Feb 11 '13 at 17:14
Heya, have you managed to find a solution to this? I'm experiencing the exact same issue (Lenovo ThinkPad with docking station, running Ubuntu Desktop 12.04.5 LTS). – Kosta Kontos Feb 27 at 14:29
