windows are not in correct order when changing desktop

description

Dears,
Thanks a lot for this nice piece of software, I have linux on my personal laptop and was missing the desktops on the company one.
 
I have an issue that when I change desktop the windows are not ordered as I left them.
This is of course very annoying.
 
Would you have any clue of what could cause that ?
 
Many thanks.
Timothé
 
about my config:
laptop Dell Precision M6300 with nVida Quadro FX 3600M - Windows XP pro.
I most of the time use it on the docking station with dual screen config, the external being configured as only 1 desktop in FVD.

I see the same behavior. Sometimes when switching away from a desktop, and then back, the windows stack is altered, and a different window is at the top. This must be a hard thing to get right, because Dexpot also suffers from the same problem.

I'm running Win7 Pro 64-bit on a Lenovo Thinkpad T420.

Running under WIndows XP and have the same problem. It always appears to happen with me.
Great bit of software, but with this annoyance it is making it hard to continue usage.

I have come up with a solution to this problem. It turns out that the built-in Windows API EnumWindows does not return windows in the Z-order (obviously), so I now sort windows by following through the top-level window chain by Z-order (using the GetWindow API). It will be in the next release.
