[Glade-users] Modal attribute

Hi folks

I am working with a GtkDialog (Windows XP(Home)).

I am wondering about the line (inserted by Glade_2):

  Set_Modal(<dialog>, True);

I see from the GtkAdaRM that, with this setting, the Dialog should:
"... grab all the mouse and keyboard events in the application while displayed."

I gather from that that the user should not be able to do anything else until
the Dialog is closed.  Well, it doesn't work that way!  The dialog displays
okay but the user can proceed to do anything else regardless.

How can I fix this?
