Bug Description

* User story

- boot your system
- open 8 different applications in your current workspace by pressing super+1, super+2, ..., super+8
- switch workspace by pressing ctrl-alt-right cursor key (do this while the applications are still busy starting)

* Expected behavior

all starting application will be opened in workspace 1

* current behavior

some of the starting applications will open in workspace 2

------------------------------------------------------
Desired Solution:

- Applications should always open on the monitor and workspace from which they are launched, even if the focus changes while the application is in the process of launching.

Hi 2green, and thanks for your report. This particular bug would not involve software-center, so I will reassign to the Ubuntu project for triage. Thank you and please continue to report any bugs that you may find!
