No worries. This appears to be a known bug in Beamer. See, for instance, 
the accepted answer here 
You can work around it by setting the overlay specification on the first 
item rather than on the frame. See the attached LyX file, which I 
modified. (I also had to change the bibliography style, since I do not 
have the .bst file you are using, but that should be unrelated to the 
itemization fix.)
