That's exactly what the WindowMaker window manager
( does, when you set some X11 window
properties right (and that's something that gtk still has some
problems with).  If I remember this right, you have to have the
WM_CLIENT_LEADER and the WM_TRANSIENT_FOR property on your dialog
window point to your main window.

Carsten, who hates MDI too.
