Command-click on Stack items to show in Finder System
I do not recall if this was present in 10.5, but at any rate, it's a feature of Snow Leopard -- just hold down Command prior to clicking any item in a Stack, and that item's folder will open in the Finder.

[robg adds: I believe this worked in 10.5, too, and I thought for sure we'd documented it here before. However, my searches came up blank, so here it is.]

Definitely worked in 10.5; possibly back all the way to 10.0. Command-clicking has always opened the enclosing folder.

Still have 10.5 at work - works as advertised.

Also - yep it has been a staple feature since the beginning.

Command click ANY item in the dock (apps too) to see its enclosing folder

command-option click shows contents of folder

even better than command click is command-option click which opens a new Finder window containing the contents of the clicked folder. very handy, imho.
