10.7: Geektool in Mission Control Desktop
Not sure if this should be considered a hint or just a curiosity. If you have GeekTool scripts running on your Desktop, they do not show up in Mission Control.

The trick to see them is to go into Mission Control and move to a Fullscreen app, and then you can see the GeekTool scripts while in Mission Control.

I have setup a swipe with four fingers gesture to move between Spaces and this works in Mission Control too.

Two screenshots which illustrate this are here: In Mission Control, and In Mission Control with a Fullscreen app.

All of my GeekTool scripts show up just fine in Mission Control. I have never used (and probably won't use) fullscreen applications.

I think that this is a bug, not a feature. I don't want to see GeekTool text overlay when I'm switchg between desktops in Mission Control.
I hope that developers of GeekTool correct this BUG.

In my case itīs enough to close the preferences manager (doesnīt matter if the geeklets are kept running) and log out and then log back in. The geeklets load behaving as one would expect.
