All desktop in Beryl show the same apps

I am running Ubuntu 7.04 + Beryl on an Acer notebook (Intel 945 video), and it works great, mostly. Rain, snow, (un)minimize effects etc. all work.

Here's my only remaining problem:
I have defined 4 desktops, and have different stuff running on each. The problem is that when I rotate the cube, it will only show me the desktop/viewport that I started from correctly, the other desktops are empty. Well, not completely empty: they do show the minimized windows (of the desktop I started from) in the bottom bar.

When I rotate back to my original desktop, it will sometimes also have the minimized bars on it for the apps on the other desktops. When I click on one of those, it will actually rotate to that desktop...

Is there a setting in Beryl Manager I can use to correct this, or is it simply a Beryl bug? I have searched everywhere for a fix to this problem, but I seem to be the only one experiencing it.

Thanks for your help.

Thats weird...i had a look around for you, and tried to recreate the bug.. but no luck.

Seeing as beryl isn't entirely stable or complete it's probably just a bug

I should probably add that even if I switch between desktops by simply clicking on the little desktop icons at the lower right, it will show an empty desktop when I click on desktop #2 for instance. However, it will not highlight the icon for desktop #2, the desktop #1 icon will remain highlighted. Very strange...
