Apologies on that one. I'd had Ubuntu Intrepid booted up when I tried it, but 
rebooting into Kubuntu on the same machine, I see that the ctrl+alt+esc 
keyboard shortcut still works on Intrepid.

You do have to be a bit carefull when using the mouse pointer of death, and 
make sure that it actually is on the title bar of the app you want to kill. 
Once I killed the desktop accidentally, rather than the frozen app.

Live and learn, eh!
