Well, you would think that creating several Gnome Terminal Sessions
on different desktops would work? I had 4 GTS on the first desktop,
3 GTS on the 2nd Desktop, and one really expanded GTS on the third
Desktop, and I find that sometimes the 3rd GTS ended up on the 1st
Desktop, the 3rd of the 3 GTS, ended up on the 1st Desktop and I find
that sometimes logging out then logging back in restores everything to
the correct Desktops, but not always.  I am of course assuming that the
GTS is correctly implemented but I could be wrong! ;)
