Bug Description

I am running Gutsy, If you click on any icon/launcher, "Computer" for instance and quickly change to a different workspace before the window has time to open, it will open in the new workspace you just changed to instead of the one you were in when you clicked the icon/launcher. I switch workspaces with my scroll wheel and am using "normal" Visual Effects.

I just thought that this would be a great idea to have programs open in the workspace that they were launched and not the workspace you are in when the window pops up. I see it's "triaged". Will this be in one of the next versions?
