New issue 256 by oscar.boykin: Xmonad should start programs in the  
workspace they were launched

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Launch a program (using dmenu for instance)
2. change workspaces before the window is shown
3. Observe that the program is launched in the new window (and often steals

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I would prefer if the window would be launched in the workspace in which it
was started.  For instance, workspace 2 is used for web browsing, it would
be nice to start a browser there, and switch workspaces and not have the
browser start in the new workspace.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
Xmonad 0.8 packaged with Ubuntu 8.10
