Red face Why do widgets vanish/hide when I hit 'show desktop'?

I'm using a couple of yahoo widgets on my desktop (dock is closed)... and when a couple of windows and internet applications are open, I use the little 'show desktop' icon in the taskbar to view the desktop.

This does show the desktop... but I want to see it WITH the widgets - they seem to hide as well when 'show desktop' is hit. If I open a window, and then minimize it... the widgets are back on.

Dang it...

Show desktop clears EVERYTHING that is not directly attached to the desktop.
