It does not seems to be related with the application, as it works with any
of them. I reproduce it with the terminal, with firefox, with gedit, and
with the calculator.
It think this may be more a configuration issue. I just reinstalled awn, and
still see the problem.
I tried launching awn into a terminal, and receive the two following error
messages :

(awn-applet:3372): Wnck-CRITICAL **: wnck_application_get_windows: assertion
`WNCK_IS_APPLICATION (app)' failed

** (awn-applet:3372): CRITICAL **:
desktop_agnostic_fdo_desktop_entry_glib_real_get_localestring: assertion
`locale != NULL' failed

I use the windows manager applet, in the task manager tab, only "group
common window" is checked.

The step to reproduce, for me, are quite straightforward :
- start the computer
- start an application (either throught the launchbar, or by gnome do)
- switch desktop and start the application again
- click on the application icon in awn, the desktop will switch back to the
first workspace
- clicking on the application icon bring me back and forth between the two

Is there any way I can get more debug infos from awn ?
