Please excuse me asking: by Workspace, do you mean the numbered desktops
on Ctrl-1 Ctrl-2 etc, or is there some other TDE feature that I've
missed ?  Assuming the former, the desktop number for each window seems to
be stored in the session entry for twin, not that for the program itself.

I don't know of any documentation for the feature, but I use "manually
saved" session option and things always restart on the right desktop.

In the distant past, relying on logout to save session didn't always work
for me, or else would restore session once but then not again.  But that
was way back in KDE3 days, and I've just stuck with the easy option.
