Shell 3.10.4 fixes annoying bug in cloned monitors!

Almost at the same time with the unstable Shell 3.11.90, comes the stable release 3.10.4. This is a the 4th maintenance release of 3.10 series that brings some major fixes.

Without having a second monitor to try it out, I think that’s the most “single” annoying bug that is now fixed.

Petr Schindler [reporter] [#710610]

When I mirror desktop over two monitors (built-in and external one) I can’t move applications to another workspace (in overview).

When I drag and drop application to another workspace it appears on the current one. This happens also when I drag&drop window from another workspace, it appears on the active workspace too.

Also when I drag window between two workspaces no new workspace appears.

See video attached.

Version: gnome-shell-3.10.1-1.fc20.x86_64 | Fedora 20
