I've upgraded to GWorkspace 0.7.0 here. I'm struggling with the
following problems. Can anyone help?

1. I have to install GWorkspace into /System, rather than my more
normal /Local for everything except core and remote mounts. Why?
Is GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_ROOT hardwired or have I misconfigured? If I
try to install into /Local, it can't find its helper Tools and exits.

I've GNUSTEP_INSTALLATION_DIR = $(GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_ROOT) in all the makefiles. 
And the app looks for its tools only in System. This to avoid problems with 
duplicate elements.

2. Even with it installed into /System, GWorkspace can't start
Operation or Recycler itself and disables file operations. When
they are run manually, it all works but they get their own
app-icons - should they appear, or is my wm missing a hint?

This is an old problem that has been reported also for Inspector when it was a 
separate application. I've never been able to reproduce it, neither on my 
linuxes nor on OS X. So, I can't say anything... The code is very simple; 
GWorkspace tries to contact the application and, if it can't, tell NSWorkspace 
to launch it and waits some seconds in a loop re-trying to contact it. The very 
strange thing is that the same code is used also for all the gworkspace tools, 
fswatcher, ddbd, etc. and I've never heard of problems, in this case. With the 
tools, the only difference is that GW launches a NSTask instead of using the 
NSWorkspace method.

3. When I quit GWorkspace and restart, only one Viewer reappears.
The other one is lost. Is this a known bug, or local misconfig?

No, it's not a known bug; GWorkspace must remember all the windows and their 
positions.
Try to remove all the GWorkspace dictionary from .GNUstepDefaults.

Thanks in advance for any answers.
