when I plug in/out an external monitor monitor, or I rotate the laptop monitor, the windows/applications open in the several workspaces often mess up, such as in the following figure:

windows messed up

How can avoid it? I work with a laptop plugged to a bigger screen and a lot of windows open, and several times a day I unplug the external monitor to bring the laptop with me, resulting in this issue.

The same occours when I put my laptop (a "convertible" thinkpad X220T) in portrait mode.
