front end bug?

Version 8 Mac OS X 10.6.5

Open a notebook and add an editbar (toolbar) and make the screen
environment slideshow and then make it full screen. Either use the
menu or do this:

 ScreenStyleEnvironment -> "SlideShow", WindowSize -> {Full, Full}]

Now change it back to working e.g. via menu commands or

SetOptions[EvaluationNotebook[], ScreenStyleEnvironment -> "Working",
 WindowSize -> {Large, Large}, WindowToolbars -> "EditBar"]

On my computer it is impossible -- within Mathematica -- to recover
the toolbar in this notebook once you have had the notebook in full
screen slideshow. The toolbar will show up as being present in the
menu (a tick next to Show Toolbar) and in the option inspector but it
isn't there. The only way to recover it is to edit the notebook in a
text editor and delete "WindowFrame->Normal" from the Internal cache

Any else had this problem when working with slideshows?
