please let us know which dialogs cause you grief. There are only very
few truely modal dialogs in Gnumeric. Most only block the associated
spreadsheet window.

Are you thinking of having something like the functionality in emacs
where you can be accessing the same buffer in two different frames (Even
on 2 different X displays)? This would be pretty neat.

This is implemented. Simply choose view->newview.

 Currently you
need to use split view to freeze one section while you are scrolling
around other parts of the sheet.

No, that is not correct. See above.

 I am not sure how much I would use
multiple windows for one sheet, but I am sure it would be very useful to
some people. EG: Manipulating a multi sheet workbook on a dual head
display. You could have one sheet selected on one display head, and be
referring to it while entering a formula on a different sheet in the
same workbook on a different window on the other display head.

Is this worth an enhancement request bug on bugzilla?

this is already implemented. SO no enhancement request needed.
