Confirmed here with Ubuntu 10.04 and Rev 4.0 - here's the RQCC report:

It's a fairly specialized use case: If you just want to move Rev from 
one desktop to another it's fine, but when you want to have your Rev 
windows spread out across multiple desktops on Linux Rev will move all 
of them to one desktop.  In OS X, Rev works fine with Spaces, but with 
Gnome it moves everything at once.

It's worth noting that the report was submitted by Peter (thank you, 
Peter).  Don't know why it didn't turn up in earlier searches (I'm 
finding more than a few anomalies with the BZ search feature - I guess 
even open source projects have bugs just like everything else <g>), but 
it's good to see him provide a useful report to help guide the effort.
