User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en; rv: Gecko/20080206 Camino/1.5.5
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en; rv: Gecko/20080206 Camino/1.5.5

When multiple Camino windows are open across multiple desktops/spaces, opening a new window, regardless of what desktop you are on, results in window appearing on the desktop from which you launched Camino and the desktop focus being shifted back to that desktop.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Configure OSX 10.5 with more than one space/desktop
2.Start Camino on one of the desktops.
3.Open a second Camino window on that desktop and drag it onto one of the other desktops you've got.
4.On this other desktop, select Camino and open a new window. 

Actual Results:  
It shifts the desktop focus back to the original desktop from which Camino was launched and opens the new window there.

Expected Results:  
It should open the new window in the same desktop (as would be expected and is the  current behaviour for Firefox 3 RC3 and Safari).

Apple provides absolutely no API for apps to understand or interact with Spaces, so not only are we not explicitly causing this, we couldn't change the behavior even if we wanted to.

Either you have set Camino to be pinned to a space in the Spaces preferences, or you are encountering a bug in Space itself that would need to be reported to Apple. (I haven't seen the same behavior on any of my Leopard machines, so I would guess that the former is more likely.)

Doh, pinned it in spaces,  sincere apologies for false alarm.
