i think this is the correct behaviour.  i'm not sure how to get it to work
the way you seem to want it to, where all monitors change.

it took me a little adjustment, but now i (for the most part) prefer this
monitor by monitor changing, rather than changing all screens, as i was
accustomed to in plain ol' kde.

it's actually much more useful like that.  at least with three monitors
anyway.  :)

9 desktops, each the size of a screen (not spanning all), and can be swapped
around to any of my three monitors (or two in your case).

so if i have say, desktop 1 on the left, 2 in the middle and 3 on the right,
and i then meta 1 onto the one on the right, 3 would move to the one on the

this the kind of "weird" behaviour you've been getting?
