I just had a look at this -- the tasklist applet doesn't seem to send
the required client message requesting the workspace change.

I think there's an option in the gwmh code to modify the _WIN_WORKSPACE
root window property directly, for window managers that don't follow
the gnome-wm spec correctly. Maybe this is getting turned on somehow..?


p.s. to see this for yourself, execute the following code in sawmill.
Switching workspaces via desk-guide will use a client message, the
tasklist doesn't.

(add-hook 'client-message-hook
	  (lambda args
	    (show-message (format nil "client-message: %S" args))
