Re: [e-develop] Mutliple desktop root windows?


 As far as I can see, this is not a gmc bug as Mandrake said, even 
though it has bugs and it is in any case going to die and be replaced. 
The problem is clearer with your explanation below.

 But this means that you can't really drag and drop unless you 
redefine the whole concept to enable dropping onto a virtual root 

 This leads to the following question: How many people use this 
feature and is it needed with the advent of the nifty E pager that 
shows everything?
