Hmmm. I'm using a single row of 6 workspaces. When I reach the left
hand edge of the 1st workspace or the right hand edge of the 6th
workspace, it does not wrap me to the 6th or the 1st workspace
respectively. (Going to the left of 2nd workspace takes me to 1st
workspace, right of 2nd takes me to 3rd, etc, etc). This wrapping
behaviour for the 1st & last workspaces is different to version 4.2
which does wrap from 1st to last and last to 1st at the left and right
hand edges of 1st and last workspaces respectively.

(i.e. thinking about workspace numbers in version 4.2 they form a
circle with the user in the middle:

     6   2
     5   3

and in version 4.4 a line:

1 2 3 4 5 6


Does that make my ramblings a bit more clearer?
