New issue 272 by j... at kitenet.net: layout updates lazily (visible in gnome  

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. use xmonad with gnome pager
2. move a window to a different workspace than the current one
3. see lazy layout update in pager

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

(This is a minor problem.)

It seems that xmonad updates workspace layouts
lazily; if the workspace is not visible, the layout does not change when
new windows enter it. That's ok, except the gnome pager displays
mini views of each workspace, and this lazy updating is visible in them.

When a window moves to a non-visible workspace, the pager will show it
floating over the other windows in that workspace, at the size and position
it occupied previously. Switch to that workspace and the layout finally
gets updated, with the new window tiled in (or whatever).

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?

0.8 on debian unstable
