In Unity-2D, I only have one row of workspaces when I switch with Ctrl+Alt+Arrow, but two when I hit Meta+S. Is there a way I can get two rows in both?

This is a know issue that was fixed a few days ago, but it looks like we will have to wait until 12.04 to see if fixed by default.

Here is the bug report page:

On the upside, on that page this comment ( ) gives a python script that will resolve the issue in your current session. What I did was put that script in ~/bin, make it executable, and then add it to Startup Applications. This will fix up your workspace issue on login, so if you changes your workspace layout you will need to run the script again (say by logging out then back in, or just run it in a terminal).
