Description of problem: For a dual monitor setup, its not possible to configure two pagers.
I have a dual monitor setup with xfce on F13. I would like to have a workspace switcher on either of my screens. I have a panel at the bottom of my primary screen with a workspace switcher applet, and I have another panel on my second screen. I have both the applets set to the 2 row view.
Every time I log out or restart the panel rather, the workspace switcher on my second screen defaults back to the default one row setup, even though I have both of them setup as two rows. Right clicking the faulty applet and bringing up the properties dialogue shows me, its correctly set to 2. However changing the number has no effect on it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): xfce4-panel-4.6.4-1.fc13.x86_64
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce: 1.add a pager on one panel, and configure as you wish. (e.g. 2 rows) 2.add another pager with the same configuration. 3.log out log back in or restart the panel from the run dialogue with "xfce4-panel -r" 4.the 2nd pager defaults back to the default 1 row setup.
Actual results: on a new login, or restarting the panel it doesn't preserve the row settings for the 2nd pager
Expected results: it should preserve the settings for both of the pagers.
Additional info: Only thing that works is to remove the 2nd pager and add it again. When I add it, it shows up as 2 rows, but the properties dialogue still shows 1 row. I change it to 2 before closing. On logging out, its again back to the default one row.
I don't know whether this is relevant or not, I didn't notice this before since I bought the second monitor recently. So when F13 was installed there was one monitor, and the 2nd monitor is a later addition.
