This does not seem to happen with other window managers with a simpler
notion of a virtual desktop. Thus, I suspect that the part that wine
can't handle is changing the page within a virtual desktop. Any

The problem seems to occur with all newer versions of wine, but I
guess, it has not always been there. I occasionally still use Borland
Kylix (which came bundled with a private version of wine) and this
program creates a whole zoo of windows without losing any of them when
switching desktops ...

Has anybody at least discovered any workaround (except making all wine
windows sticky, which works, but basically kills the virtual desktops)?
