In the Mac world, clicking outside the active window while holding the option button hides the active window. After upgrading to Lion, I am experiencing a bug in all Adobe programs; option-clicking outside the window will hide the program, but will leave a static "ghost" image of the program on the screen. That is, the screen will look the same, but I can actually click my desktop "through" the window. Hope this makes sense. Is anyone else experiencing this problem? The command-H keyboard shortcut is still functional, though.
Works as you describe here...spooky! Other programs seem to be disappearing fine (I did not know about the shortcut BTW, thanks!).

Went ahead and reported it as a bug. Option-click should get more love, it's a great help when switching between programs (you're welcome!).
I'm staying away from Lion for a while as I've seen way too many little quirks mentioned on the various forums I frequent.
I'm thinking although Lion is the latest, it's just not the greatest.
Apple is in this huge limbo right now for professionals. I sure hope it all gets sorted out and communicated to the public realm so we can make educated future decisions.
