Ok. I will try explain my point clearer.  Suppose you
working on a session.  In that session, some windows
are visible (u are working on them) and others are
minimized (u are not interested on them).  In the
middle u wanted to go to desktop for some reasons say
to change wallpaper or something.  This is were
showdesk plugin comes into help (of course, one can
also switch to another empty workspace).  
But after the user finishes working on the desktop (or
background), he/she wants to restore his work.  But
showdesk doesn't come to help here.  Instead it
restores all the minimized windows.
But it would be better if showdesk restores only the
minized windows that were minized by it.

Hope that clears everything.
