The HIG's and/or GUI toolkit documentation for:
Mac OS X GNOME Qt KDE Windows all indicate that {message,alert} boxes are modal, at least for the window to which they apply. (Presumably the idea is that not forcing the user to pay attention to the alert box, and allowing more than one alert box to be up for a given window, causes more problems than not letting the user do stuff to that window in order to figure out what the underlying problem is or figure out what to do to fix it - the message should be sufficient, in most if not all cases, to let you know what the problem is.) Make "simple_dialog()" unconditionally make the alert box modal, and get rid of ESD_TYPE_MODAL. XXX - we need to make it possible to make an alert box modal for a given window, rather than just the top-level window. svn path=/trunk/; revision=10051
