Re: When in Full screen mode, dialogs make system menu appear (replacing app menu)

 In my app, I go into full screen mode and then bring up a dialog.  The

That's just how most window managers work and there's nothing GTK+ can
do about it. If you don't want that behaviour you either write a
custom WM and tell your users to use it instead of the default or you
don't use top level windows besides the main one.

You really have to design your app thinking about the whole
environment where it will work, and GTK+ is far from being the sole
component in said environment.
