Workspaces app does not Auto-raise

The Workspaces app Auto-raise was broken. When the mouse went to the edge of the screen it did not bring the Workspaces window the the front.

I've attached a patch to fix the problem.

This can't be right. With this change applied, the Workspaces window would pop up every time your mouse gets near the screen edge. It should do that only if you're also over any part of the Workspaces window. Just like it's done with LaunchBox or the Deskbar with activated auto-raise.

That is the way the app was designed. To confirm this I noticed the command line switch that described the same behavior. However I do agree that the behavior should be the same as LaunchBox.

" --autoraise auto-raise the workspace window when it's at the screen edge."

I can lodge an enhancement ticket (which I am likely to try to solve myself).

Edit: I see that I was wrong, and have recieved feedback. A new patch should come soon.

It turns out the code is technically correct but the behavior needs turning so that it behaves as well as Launchbox does. I will lodge a separate enhancement ticket with patch.
