[texhax] Beamer bug with "cases"-environment in amsmath

It seems that there is a bug in Beamer that prevents the usage of  
"\alert<n>" command within the "cases"-environment in the amsmath  
package. This causes a Beamer/LaTeX-complie error whereas the   
corresponding "\alert"command without slidenumber specification works  

Any ideas for a workaround?

Beamer version: Version 3.06 (TeXLive CD 2007)

Below is a minimal example together with an excerpt from log-file.  
The first "cases"-environment doesn't work whereas the next works fine.

------------ start ------------



   \alert<1>{x} &

   \alert{x} &


------------ end ------------

------------ excerpt from log-file ------------
! Argument of \beamer at next has an extra }.
