Delete active workspace removes last workspace


Description Benedikt Waldvogel 2012-05-04 12:01:33 CEST
"Delete active workspace" should remove the active workspace. Instead, it removes the last workspace as the action "Delete last workspace" would do.

"Delete active workspace" worked for me until xfwm 4.8.3. Since 4.9 it seems to be broken.

Reproducible: always

My keybinding for "Delete last workspace" is Alt-Delete
... for "Delete active workspace" it is Shift-Alt-Delete

To exclude a keybinding conflict as the reason I cleared the keybinding of "Delete last workspace" which had no effect though.

I can /sometimes/ reproduce the issue. It looks a bit random, on one laptop I could reproduce pretty often (but not always), on my main laptop it happens once in a while (but really not that often).

So it might be some kind of timing issue / race condition.

It might be worth trying to bisect.
