What is going on with the desktops?

Everything seems to default to desktop 1, regardless of whats already open.

Example, I open up the players, and then I open a performance with say a VST. The perf opnes the VST to , yep you guessed it, desktop one.

This of course covers up the Players view, so I then have to use the other desktop buttons to access the task bar tab for the players view (still on desktop 1).

Before I open these programs, VST's, giga files etc, I alwasy select a differetn desktop, but it does nto seem to make any difference. They all open to D1??

Its a Linux thing I am sure, or I am not using the correct desktop buttons, or something.....
