Here's what happens:

If I have...

  • ...only the laptop-screen activated
  • ...window A on workspace 1
  • ...window B on workspace 2

and open nvidia-settings and activate an external display (TwinView).

What happens then is that window A is moved to the left screen, and window B moved to the right screen both on workspace 1.

If I then deactivate the external display, all windows (including possible windows on workspace 3 and 4) ends up on workspace 1!

Is there a way to fix this? I just want each workspace to get wider I don't want windows to me moved around!

(Using Natty and Gnome. This wasn't the behavior in lucid.)
