A simpler approach
Authored by: wallybear on Nov 17, '09 02:37:49PM
There is a simpler approach that doesn't need to kill the poor Dock; using Applescript you can tell the system to change the desktop:

tell application "System Events"
	set rotinterval to change interval of current desktop
	set change interval of current desktop to 1
	delay 1
	set change interval of current desktop to rotinterval
end tell
You can assign this script to a hotkey (using Spark, for example).
The script temporarily changes the picture rotation interval to 1 sec., allows the system to change the picture and then restores the original interval.

You can also make this applescript a service using Automator and the run applescript action save as a service then add a shortcut using the new keyboard shortcuts option in the keyboard prefpane. Works quite well.
