Applications should be opened in the workspace that initialized launch

Bug #991739 reported by Jo Vik on 2012-04-30
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
compiz (Ubuntu)
unity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:
1) In workspace #1 launch a big application (so it takes few seconds before window is loaded)
2) Switch to workspace #2 and wait for a while

Current result:
Newly launched application will create window in workspace #2, although it was workspace #1 that initialized it.

Expected result?
I like to start few apps in the 1st workspace, then switch to next workspace and start some new apps (I like to keep them organized).
