Please explain.
I agree with David this seems wrong. It also if I remember correctly is different to the behaviour on Linux. It is also different to the behaviour of GNOME when you have hotkeys programmed to switch between workspaces. I have <shift>F? where ? is the workspace number and I can (and do) keep the shift key pressed and flick between workspaces. I'd expect virtual consoles to work the same way. -- Darren J Moffat
