I just experienced this again. I was dragging X-Chat from workspace 6
to workspace 3, and it just disappeared. It's still running, but it's
nowhere to find.
This is with an 8 days old xfce from svn, which I just updated to the
latest xfce from svn, but haven't restarted it yet.
And you know what? I just reproduced it.
This is what you need to do:
1. Have a window open on a workspace that ain't the current workspace.
2. Kill xfwm4
3. Start xfwm4
4. Move the window you kept open to another workspace, but not to the
5. See it disappear
