Based on the fact that application1 probably doesn't know anything about
icewm workspaces, I'ld guess there's not much you can do within the framework
If icewm has a mechanism for saving state (it's been awhile since I've used
Ice, so not sure what it's current capabilities are), you may be able to
leverage that. Failing that, if there any icewm-specific init scripts that
you can run, you may be able to move application1 over to Workspace 2.
