"Window Manager Tweaks" settings panel, "Workspaces" tab, uncheck "Wrap
workspaces depending on the actual desktop layout".

No, I don't believe so.  Windows can't overlap between workspaces.  If
you're having trouble grabbing parts of the window, you can hold down
the alt key and drag to move the top of the window off-screen so you
can see the bottom.
