ever tried xfce4.10? 4.8 gets only security updates AFAIK.

First of all, thanks for all the good work! Finally after years of
using fvwm1 (a private patched version), I found a good replacement for
it in xfce. I am running Debian Wheezy (i.e., xfce 4.8), and xorg with
an intel driver on a Laptop. X11 ist set up to run in Zaphod mode,
i.e., two heads with separate screens :0.0 and :0.1.
In this setting, I noticed that xfwm does not wrap the workspace despite
enabling this feature. It works when pulling a window along, but not
without. I have set up no logical relation between the screens (no
LeftOf or the like, I am switching with 'xdotool mousemove'), so I don't
know exactly why xfwm thinks it's a bad idea to wrap the workspace with
the mouse. But it really does, hardcoded, in events.c:
if (display_info->nb_screens > 1)
/* Wrap workspace/wrap windows is disabled with multiscreen */
Does anyone know why exactly this is disabled? I mean, if you don't
like it, you can disable the feature in the WM settings nice and easy.
Because I wanted this feature badly, I put a #if 0...#endif around the
above code and recompiled, and it works like a charm. I couldn't see
any bug in my multiscreen setup.
So please consider removing those lines of code. Again: if you don't
like xfwm's behaviour for some reason (e.g. because X moves the cursor
to the other screen when hitting the edge (which it does not do for me
due to the missing relationship of the screens)), you can always disable
the feature. But I could not *enable* it in my case except for recompiling.
