I had not noticed as I do not often use multiple work spaces but do 
always have four spaces set up.
I too had this "static workspaces only on primary display" setting "on" 
- and thus each of the four workspaces showed exactly the same open 
windows - not at all what previously occurred.

Setting this to "off" give the other three workspaces just the default 
desktop - on both monitors - however it is still different than before 
(7,2, 7.1) as now the open windows contents of both monitors is only on 
the one desktop and the other three have both screens default blank 
desktop - previously the second monitor contents was visible on all four 
No idea what is meant to be correct - I can live with this, but these 
illogical changes that keep happening with gnome are difficult to 
understand - the new gnome developers obviously think and work VERY 
differently to me.
