Where's that application I just opened?

Why is it that my applications rarely open in the desktop I expect them to?
I click on a Calc file in one desktop and it opens with OOo in another. In
this situation, at least the focus follows the application and I’m
automatically switched to the new desktop. However, there are other times
when I have to hunt through the desktops to find the application.

I thought this was an 11.2 problem but it’s also happening in 11.1. Perhaps
it’s KDE4.3?
