Yeah, you have to turn either option off or use a large resistance for
workspace wrap (although that is probably not how people want to use
this feature).

OT, personally I don't like the pointer to wrap workspaces, but I do
like being able to drag windows to another workspace. I won't ask for
extra options though, I'm against that.

Please, no more options. This sounds to me as a very minor problem, a
bit of redundant information. Not worth it to further fill up the
already crammed xfwm settings dialog.

I didn't use xftree either. I'm afraid I prefer icon views or mc-like
two-pane file managers. But I must say xffm is shaping up very nicely. I
will try using it a bit more, perhaps I'll learn to like it eventually.
