Bug Description

I am running the latest indicator-workspaces 0.6.2.2 on oneiric. Several times, when I attempt to switch workspaces (from the keyboard C-M-left/right) the desktop freezes. I can move the mouse, but all windows are non-responsive. This goes away if I kill indicator-workspaces and restart it. Please let me know if I can provide any additional information.

I am also running the latest version and having this problem in ubuntu 11.10. For me it happened when I first clicked on indicator workspaces in the panel and went to a different workspace. Have not experimented further, just deselected it from my startup applications.

I experienced this issue in 12.04 LTS 64-bit with compiz cube enabled.
using the indicator worked fine, but when I moved screens using anything else (workplace switcher, keyboard comands, or the "cube", the indicator did not update the desktop number and eventually the entire desktop froze.

Unistalled indicator-workspaces, disabled compiz cube, re-installed indicator-workspaces.
Everything works fine, no problems using the indicator, workplace switcher (from launcher), or keyboard shortcuts. Indicator changes value as expected.

Let me know if you need additional system info.
