Bug Description

Here is my environment.
uname -a

Linux XXXXX 2.6.38-gentoo-r4 #1 SMP Tue May 3 19:15:47 EDT 2011 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU M 560 @ 2.67GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

I have Nvidia Graphics driver -- package x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers version - 260.19.36

AWN version --
gnome-extra/avant-window-navigator-extras -

I have XFCE4.8 desktop environment and four work spaces.
I distribute my launchers across the work spaces. When I click on any of launchers, AWN brings back the application to current work space. This defeats the purpose of workspaces. I think it should switch to the launcher's workspace and open it there when clicked. It works like this in Cairo Dock. But I switched to AWN, because it takes less resources. Please see if you can fix this.

0.3.2 is really old. You should go for at least version 0.4.0, or (even better) 0.4.1 which is probably the version called 9999 in Gentoo. (Don't know the state of the ebuilds for 9999, I build lp:libdesktop-agnostic + lp:awn + lp:awn-extras manually on Gentoo)
