Every so often in Safari the window randomly hides. I have to click the icon for it to open again.

I have a Unibody Macbook Late 2009 and 10.6.3.

Anyone know what this is about?

Does it move off the screen? If so are you somehow activating Expose? You may have it enabled via a hot corner (and you are moving the mouse into that corner) or by a key on the keyboard.
Check Expose in System Preferences..

Does it hide as in the same hide that happens when you hit :cmd:H ? Or does it fly off the screen, or move behind other windows?

Another possibility is that your Option key is being pressed or is stuck somehow. If you hold Option and click on a window from another application, the app that's in focus will get hidden.

No it just hides like it would when I press command-H.. The option key being pressed is the most likely option if there are no other suggestions?
