Show Desktop button in Windows 7 hides the DisplayFusion taskbar.

Just what the title says, the little rectangular Show Desktop button on the superbar causes the second bar to hide like it's a normal application.

Just as a note I tried to replicate this issue several different ways (using Windows 7 x64 Ultimate) and the taskbar has always stayed forefront for me

I haven't been able to reproduce this either with version 3.1.x. However, if there is a full-screen application detected than DisplayFusion will switch to a more "passive" state, which would allow the "Show Desktop" button to hide it. The next time it happens can you post the information from the "Troubleshooting" tab in DisplayFusion? It should indicate whether DisplayFusion thinks a full-screen app is running. Thanks!

It says no full screen applications running, but it's happening now.

Are you talking about mousing over the "show desktop" button, or clicking it?

I'm talking about mousing over. Sorry, I guess I was kind of vague. There is code to make aeropeek ignore an application. Just saw something posted about it here http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=794078 .

Wow, thanks for doing some of the investigating. :) It looks like that will definitely work, but I'll have to test it out quite a bit first. Once I get it working I'll follow up here and include the fix in version 3.1.5. Thanks!
