[Gambas-user] x11.DesktopWindow.Desktop and MATE

trying to help a user with workspace switching and i discovered something.

i found setting X11.DesktopWindow.Desktop did not work to move to another
workspace but using DesktopWindow.Move() did on MATE desktop.

then i found using DesktopWindow.Move was not working on gnome or cinnamon
but using DesktopWindow.Desktop did !

so i've had to use this..

  Dim xw As DesktopWindow = New DesktopWindow(Me.Handle)

  Select Direction

    Case Move_Right
      If Desktop.Type = "MATE" Then xw.Move(Screen.Width + Me.X, Me.Top)
Else xw.Desktop += 1

    Case Move_Left
      If Desktop.Type = "MATE" Then xw.Move(0 - Screen.Width + Me.X, Me.Top)
Else xw.Desktop = Max(xw.Desktop - 1, 0)

End Select

Is it a bug to report or can it be expected to behave different on the
various desktops?
