Constraint Not Showing Under "Constraints" in Management Studio

I created a new table like this:

IF OBJECT_ID('MyTables') IS NULL
CREATE TABLE MyTables (
id INT IDENTITY (1,1),
SomeName VARCHAR(20) NOT NULL CONSTRAINT UniqueSomeName UNIQUE (SomeName)
);

Now, when I got to Management Studio (2005), the constraint does not show under the "Constraints", but it does show under the "Indexes" and "Statistics". Am I doing something wrong?

a UNIQUE constraint is implemented by a UNIQUE INDEX. hence it shows up there...
