If you use Spaces on Leopard, you should install this fix immediately. It blocks the annoying default behavior of Spaces, which is to try to force all windows from the same application onto the same virtual desktop.

Spaces still isn’t quite up to par with standard unix virtual desktops - such as not remembering the stack order of windows when you switch away from a desktop and then return to it. But the fix above makes it substantially more useable.
