No indication of remaining minimised windows on other workspaces
If I've been using workspaces, I will change to each one in turn to check whether they are clean before I shutdown, restart or logout. Usually, due to this and other problems with workspaces, I avoid using workspaces altogether.
---- Possible Solutions ----
One possible solution is to disable the timer on turn-off dialogues and replace:
'The system will automatically shutdown after 60 seconds...'
'You have <n> windows open.'
Another solution would be to show the number of windows at the corner of each workspace in the workspace switcher. Windows should be counted as 'in' the workspace which displays the majority of the area of that window. (As workspaces and windows are rectangle, and workspaces are usually arranged corner-to-corner, this is usually synonymous with the workspace that contains the window's centre.)
