Yup, works for me too, definitely a Mission Control/Spaces issue. The Aperture team did contact me, so they are seeing this issue on here.
Hopefully not long for a proper fix!
Good work team!!! ;-)

Actually for the bug to happen you not only need to have assigned Aperture to a space but also to have the Browser view active when you arrive in Aperture. If you were using the Split view last time you quit Aperture, the bug does not occur (at least on my iMac and MBA)
Strange thing, the bug does not occur either if you try to record it with Quicktime (I was trying to do a screencast to send the Aperture team who also contacted me). Weird.
Hope they fix that soon, I like having Aperture assigned to a particular Space...
My two cents

Thanks for the hope given by these ideas, but they don't do it for me. Here's part of what I posted a short while ago elsewhere, before seeing this thread:
"Yesterday, I could not open the latest upgrade of Aperture at all on my iMac (8gb Ram installed). Like all other apps, it just hung, and Force Quit caused any other app on the machine to freeze up too.
Today, I booted the machine in Safe Mode. Takes about 5 mins (reminiscent of having a Microsoft machine), but Aperture then opened under this method. I can see all projects and albums in the Browser view. In Split View, the thumbnails appear at the foot of the screen as normal, but the viewing pane is blank. In Viewer mode, nothing shows at all.
All metadata is nevertheless visible in Inspector. In Split View, running the mouse over the blank viewing pane in crop or straighten mode affects the thumbnail in the normal way - it crops or straightens.
So, the problem is clearly that the version from which I would normally edit is simply missing from actual view on screen. This suggests the error is partly in the Aperture upgrade, or at least in how it displays under Lion.
I have been through all three of the Library rebuild processes. Neither of these made any difference to the problem. I can view and manipulate separate versions of the same photos in iPhoto, but iPhoto will not read the Aperture library.
Booted in normal mode, Aperture still will not open at all. It says it is accessing the Library, but the Force Quit screen (even after leaving it for 30 minutes) says Aperture is "not responding".
Nothing on my iMac since installing Lion will give me access to any external USB drive or memory card."
I have tried all the spaces options. Still nothing. No full screen viewer or main view in Split View, only Browser thimbnails and Split View thumbnails.

Issues reolved for me (for now, at least) by Apple Support. They found a bundle of corrupted disk permissions. I know these were not there before the installation of Lion and Aperture 313 because I gave the machine a very thorough healthcheck before running the Lion install. Anyhow, once fixed, I immediately regained use of Finder and all viewing options in Aperture.
My Iomega external HD (ethernet) was more reluctant to return, but having been switched on and off several times, it decided to play. Something similar with my USB HDD, which returned to Finder, and played hide and seek for about half an hour, before coming back on screen. Even the SD disk slot is now working.

good to hear that it's working for you! I was trying to replicate your error on my machine this morning, and couldn't get it to happen... which I was most happy about!!!

I've had a fully working iMac for a few days now, with Aperture 3.1.3 working as it should, except for one thing which it did not ever do before the upgrade to Lion and 3.1.3. Grateful for comments.
If I edit a batch of photos in succession in split view or larger, there will come a point where Aperture loses the picture from screen, I get the spinning coloured wheel, and Force Quit tells me it is not responding. By "edit" all I have been doing is cropping, straightening and tweaking exposure on some new albums of 500 to 600 photos.
The error occurs regularly, though I've not counted the number of shots I can do before it fails each time. Probably about 20. Forcing the app to quit and restarting gets over the issue until the next time. I lose any edit on the shot I was working on at the time, but nothing else.
I have 8gb memory on my iMac. The error arises whether I have any other apps running on the machine or not.
This is a nuisance more than a disaster, but something that, as I say, I never got before 3.1.3 and Lion.

Brilliant - How did you manage to fine that one !

It's a spaces/mission control issue. I had Aperture assigned to a specific space. In the dock, I right clicked on Aperture, went to Options, Assign To, then checked None, then moved it back to the space I wanted and then tried going into full screen and it works perfect now (no having the toolbar and film strip in a regular space while the rest of Aperture was set to its own full screen space.)

I have somewhat similar behaviour. I would say generally Aperture and Lion fullscreen mode is extremely flaky and fragile. I get different behaviour every time - sometimes it works fine and sometimes it doesn't.
Open Aperture > make it fullscreen with top right fullscreen icon > any of the following could happen:
1. Aperture extends to it's own space, goes completely black, toolbar still can appear, controls don't really work. I "3-finger" gesture back to desktop, Aperture comes with me and my desktop is black and blocked from an app that is fullscreen and should be in a space but isn't. Sometimes "unfullscreen" button works, sometimes not. Pressing Esc brings it back to desktop and normal Aperture.
2. Aperture extends into it's own space, I see grey "fabric" looking background (Lion standard before the application fully loads into it) and nothing else happens, I can go back to Desktop and find Aperture fullscreened there instead. Hitting Esc can restore things, often I have to exit though and hope it works ok next time.
3. See picture: When fullscreen works fine another problem can arise. When I bring my cursor to the bottom of the screen, the "photo reel" if you like should appear. It does but it appears on the desktop and pulls me over to it. I then have to gesture back to Aperture in it's space. Major annoynace especially when you inadvertantly do it.
