I'm trying some of the tips from the Cult of Mac iTunes 11 tips blog post. I don't see Options > Assign To > All Desktops when I right click my iTunes 11 icon. Any ideas? Using OSX 10.8.2, that matters.

Here’s a nifty tip for using iTunes 11 in multiple Spaces or monitors: right click the iTunes icon in your dock and select Options > Assign To > All Desktops. Now when you use iTunes in full screen mode, you can also open the MiniPlayer separately and have it run in a different space or monitor. So you could have iTunes running full screen on your big external monitor while the MiniPlayer is on your laptop screen.

On my Lion machine, I still have that option, but there are definitely some bugs in iTunes 11, so perhaps it doesn't show up for some configurations. – robmathers Dec 3 '12 at 16:41
I'm on ML and don't see the option either – patrix Dec 3 '12 at 17:00
for me it is working under ML - do you have spaces activated? – Pfitz Dec 3 '12 at 17:32
Yes, thought of that first. – Mike Dec 3 '12 at 17:38

Killing dock a couple times seemed to fix the problem:

killall Dock

In case Dock doesn't get restarted automatically run

sudo launchctl load System/Library/LaunchAgents/
sudo launchctl start
