I haven't followed this thread. Not meaning to hi-jack too much but
since you are using QJC on Gnome do you find that if QJC is running on
a second Gnome workspace that when you go to any other workspace the
QJC windows disappear from the workspace switcher?

QJC is the only app I use that does this.

Aqualung does this partially - it's Music Store and Playlist
disappears but Aqualung itself still shows up in the workspace

Anyway, just curious as to  whether this is specific to my systems or
a common way it works.
