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!
