Currently, modal dialogs are modal AWT-wide, so if a modal dialog is displayed,
no input is allowed to any windows other than the dialog box.
Instead, modal dialogs should be modal AppContext-wide, so if a modal dialog is
displayed, no input is allowed to any other windows in that AppContext.
This bug appears to be a duplicate of 4178473
"Dialogs needs modality which blocks input only to owner window"
No, those are two very different concepts. The bugs are not duplicates.
We have an API proposal for addressing this (http://javaweb.eng/~dpm/modal.txt),
but it is currently on the back-burner. Committing to tiger for now.
Implemented as a part of 4080029.
