Arg! Thats almost like a reset. Try the gnome 'logout' so it can
do a more orderly shutdown.

I'm new to gnome, but that doesnt sound right. Its all done by the
window manager.

You had four workspaces, each containing 2x2 desktops, right?
Workspaces are separate, desktops 'join'. ie a window can be half on one
and half on the next desktop. So which do you have now?
   It can all be set by gnomecc->sawfish->workspaces->workspaces
