Hiding modal dialogs

Is it possible to hide and re-show modal dialogs?

Trying this in a tiny app, calling gtk_widget_hide_all() or setting the visible property true on a running modal dialog caused its main loop to quit.

I no longer intend to try to do this in real code -- I'm just curious re whether its possible, and why. The original use case involved hiding all dialogs using a generic function that doesn't know about specific dialogs.

Is there a way to hide a modal dialog without quitting its event loop?
