When changing which desktop you are viewing, an on-screen indicator of 
which desktop you are on appears.

When moving a window between desktops, no on-screen indicator appears 
though it seems even more important in this situation. For example, moving 
a maximized window between desktops will obscure the rest of the desktop so
you can't be certain which one you are on.

I had a hard time finding this bug; to make it easier to find in searches, I'm adding Sven's description of the problem which has the words I'm more likely to use in search (workspace and preview):

"When I move windows between workspaces it would be useful to have the same
preview as when switching workspaces."
