Do you have desktop effects (animations) running? If so, then at a terminal, type in:

sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
Press Alt+F2, and type in ccsm. In the settings manager window, enable Desktop Cube, Rotate Cube, Cube Caps. Also under General Options->Desktop Size, set the Horiz virtual size to 4.

Go to System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager

Once there search for compizconfig-settings-manager and install that package.

Once installed, go to System -> Preferences -> CompizConfig Settings Manager (I think this might be called Advanced Appearance Settings or something else on some other systems.)

Now check Desktop Cube and Rotate Cube under the Desktop section.

You can use the buttons next to the checkbox to configure them.

If you increase the number of desktops to 16, you could get a desktop octadecahedron! :)

(I think that's what it would be called.)
