Hi Rob, I've not encountered this in 2 and half years
of using Gnome. Are you sure you're not accidentally
assigning the windows to another virtual desktop?

There is a thing called the Desktop Pager (I think) in
the bottom right hand corner of the screen which
allows you to have a number of different desktops for
different workspaces. You can toggle between them by
clicking on the virtual desktop icon or by scrolling
your mouse wheel while the mouse cursor is over the
Desktop Pager.

Just a guess.
