What window manager? Can you give me the bug # of your earlier report?

Comment 2 Ian Macdonald 2003-03-29 00:00:06 UTC
The old bug was #84978 and the window manager is your very own Metacity.

Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2003-03-29 00:08:16 UTC
OK, marking duplicate. There's no need to have two bugs (the version it was
filed against isn't really that relevant, as long as the bug is still open).

gconftool-2 -R /apps/metacity/workspace_names
shows the persistent data, fwiw. If there are names in there other than 
blank values it would be good to know.
