Hi Conny,
On the right side panel, where I have 12 workspaces (I really need them),
and they are displayed in a single row at the bottom of the panel.
For any given workspace, the currently running applications icons in 
that workspace,
which used to be displayed in the empty area of the right panel, 
starting near the top
of the panel, have also disappeared.
I tried to use your magical incantation above; but it does not bring 
back the icons of
the currently running apps for current workspace.
