	The theme doesn't use all the desks that you had originally, and
thus they remain.  Having them disappear with a Pager restart forces the
pager conf to be reread.  My guess it's either a bug in the theme (someone
left them in on one part of the theme and not on another) or it's a bug in
AS itself in one file overriding another.
