I'll check it out.

In KDE 4 there's a setting which I always have on:

	Workspace Behaviour -> Screen Edges -> Switch desktop on edge:

		Always Enabled.

I'm using kubuntu 13.04 which currently has KDE 4.10.5.  An example of the problem is that
when I bump, say, the left hand side of a virtual desktop, it switches to the desktop to
the left.  At that point (when I'm not using NX) the mouse warps to the same position on
the right had side of the new desktop and the mouse movement continues across the screen
in a leftward direction.

Under NX, because there's no warpiness, the mouse remains on the left of the screen where
the leftward movement triggers another desktop switch over and over until I hit the
leftmost desktop where it stops (because I have set it to not wrap).  This makes me sad.
