HyperSpaces - what does it do when there is no DOCK loaded?

OK — so Spaces is actually part of the Dock, so I'm pretty
sure that Hyperspaces won't work at all if the Dock isn't
What you're probably seeing is the system itself (at the behest
of Hyperspaces) grabbing the Dock in between reloads — the
way that DockSpaces works is neither safe, nor something that Apple
would approve for the App Store (brute force reloading the Dock
process and changing out it's preferences while the process starts
again). There's no way for an app like Hyperspaces to work and not
interact with the Dock process in some manner.
Unfortunately, I've never been able to find a good way to
prevent Hyperspaces from interfering with the way DockSpaces does
