Bug Description

When workspaces are arranged in a 2x2 grid (2 horizontal, 2 vertical) the Desktop Cube plug-in will only display the first 2 workspaces (cf. a 4x1 arrangement where the Desktop Cube plug-in will display all 4 workspaces). The reason that this is such an issue for me is that I use the Desktop Cube, Rotate Cube and Expo plug-ins and having a 2x2 arrangement of workspaces is the only way to get a space efficient 2x2 grid with the Expo plug-in.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Set desktop to 2x2 workspace arrangement (CCSM > General Options > Desktop Size)
2. Enable Desktop Cube, Cube Rotate and Expo plug-ins.
3. Trigger Cube Rotate (see that only a sheet, with 2 workspaces, is displayed)
4. Trigger Expo (see that there is a space efficient 2x2 grid of workspaces).

*I'm running an up to date Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) x86-64 installation with Compiz 0.9.6.
