I was doing some work with multiple work books open and came across this gotcha, but I wanted to check if this is normal or a bug before bugzillering it. When having multiple workbooks open, in one workbook, File:Open/Save As... leave the dialog open and get distracted with some other application. Come back to gnumeric and try and interact with another workbook (Having forgotten that there is a modal Open/Save As... dialog still open), it appears that gnumeric is frozen although all re-rendering damaged areas still takes place. There is no indication that gnumeric is waiting for a modal dialog to be finished with. Should a) The Open/Save As... dialog be modal for the workbook it was called from b) ... for the whole application c) The Open/Save As... dialog should not be modal I think it should be a, but it is actually b. This is experienced with 1.4.1 in debian/sarge.
Why shouldn't it be (c)? The open dialog should surely by (c). For the save as dialog (a) may be justifiably, but I don't see why it needs to be modal at all. Andreas -- Andreas J. Guelzow Taliesin Software, Shelties, Pyr Sheps and Shetland Sheep
