Doesn't work when logging back in
Authored by: bankshot on Aug 01, '11 10:29:48AM

Applications that are restarted at login (due to the "Reopen windows when logging back in" checkbox) do not honor their assigned spaces.

For example, I have iTunes assigned to space 3. If I'm logged in and it's not already running, it correctly starts up in space 3 when I click its icon in the dock. This is true regardless of what space I'm in when I click the icon. This is the expected behavior.

But if I leave iTunes open when logging out, along with the above checkbox checked, then iTunes will appear in space 1 (along with everything else) next time I login. This is true of all applications with specific assigned spaces. It is not the correct/expected behavior.

I suppose I should file a bug report with Apple.

That is not my experience. The apps open exactly in the Space that they are assigned, even when they are opened by Lion's Resume feature after a restart.

Interesting. So apparently, this bug is not universal, which means it may be harder for Apple to reproduce and track down. I'll have to play around with it some more and see if I can identify any conditions that trigger it or make it go away. For now, I just know that it happens every time on my user account.
