When I right click on the workspace switcher and click preferences, I
get a window with radio buttons for

Show only the current workspace, and
Shaw all workspaces in: _____ rows

I'm on F10 x86_64, Gnome. I however did find a key in gconf,

/desktop/gnome/applications/window_manager/number_of_workspaces

However the description said its deprecated; "The number of workspaces
the window manager should use This key has been deprecated since GNOME
2.12."

Is something wrong here?
