Show Desktop froze my machine

Using an Acer Aspire T140 (Athlon 64 3200+, ATI X300SE
card), most of the stuff on the live CD seemed to work, but clicking on the "Show Desktop" on the bottom left of GNOME desktop locked my machine up solid straight after shrinking the windows down, forcing me to power cycle. Anyone else see this? Loved the live CD though and let's hope future distros include this as standard.

BTW, it would be nice if the Intel family of graphics chips were included in the fun too - a lot of business Dell desktops use them nowadays and why shouldn't they have bling too?
