Created attachment 7301 screen shot of the panel and the workspaces settings
The screen shot shows the issue. The Workspaces settings manager is set to 4 workspaces but the panel shows 16 workspaces. In one sense there are really only 4. Sticking the mouse pointer into each box shows workspaces as follows:
1 1 2 2 3 3 4 4 1 1 2 2 3 3 4 4
xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/workspace_count 4
I'm running an Apple PowerBook (mid 2015 with 15" monitor) running debian linux installed onto a USB thumb drive.
uname -a Linux Dogbert 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.43-2+deb8u3 (2017-08-15) x86_64 GNU/Linux
Interestingly the issue is associated with the screen resolution. With the settings set to 2880x1800 (which is too small for me to see comfortably) there are 4 workspace boxes shown. But I have the resolution set to 1440x900.
Another interesting thing is that only the top left of the cluster of "workspaces", i.e. if the following are the workspaces for the workspace 1,
1a 1b 1c 1d
then only the 1a workspace shows the open windows whereas 1b, 1c and 1d remain empty. Clicking on any of these sub-workspaces does take me to workspace 1, ie clicking on 1b, 1c or 1d takes me to workspace 1 where I have my open windows.
