Aha! I'm glad it's just me, because that should hopefully mean that it's
possible to configure one's way out of it :).

Is there a way to force "consistency" such that I'll always end up with
consistent pairs of workspaces on each of the screens? Say as in,


   Screen 1: Workspace 0
   Screen 0: Workspace 1


   Screen 1: Workspace 2
   Screen 0: Workspace 3


   Screen 1: Workspace 4
   Screen 0: Workspace 5

Intolerant people should be shot.
