This is partly correct behaviour :)

You need to know two things:

 1. In Xorg sessions, Xorg is your display server so killing/restarting
gnome-shell does not kill the apps. They stay running and connected to
Xorg.

 2. Workspaces don't really exist. They are emulated by gnome-shell
while is running, by just hiding/moving windows around.

With that in mind, what you are seeing is somewhat correct behaviour. If
gnome-shell dies or restarts then you return to the basic setup of just
apps and Xorg running, on your single display. And since gnome-shell
(re)started after the apps it has no memory of which virtual workspace
you had them on previously. So they all appear on the same workspace.

That all said, app windows should be clickable. If they are not then it
sounds like you've found a reliable way to trigger bug 1181666. That
probably makes this a duplicate of bug 1181666. Do you agree?

** Tags added: noclick

** Changed in: gnome-shell (Ubuntu)
