I was doing some work with multiple work books open and came across this

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.

a) The Open/Save As... dialog be modal for the workbook it was called
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.
