Thanks for the suggestion.
I'm not sure if this is the actual "effect" in action,
as implementing it by Ctrl+F8 produces a slightly different picture -
the mini-desktops are aligned in a grid, as the name suggests,
while when my desktop "fractionates" the mini-dekstops
are displayed around the screen.

That sounds plausible, though as you say
I have no idea how to find the "hot zone" if indeed there is one.
The Desktop Grid entry actually says "Action - Unknown",
which is not very helpful.
