What are you trying to achieve?

To quote from my original message:

I no longer intend to try to do this in real code -- I'm just curious re whether its possible, and why.

gtk_dialog_run() runs the dialog as modal, i.e. all other controls in
the application become non-responsive.


With a hidden modal dialog you can neither use the rest of the UI nor
bring the dialog back (because you must do *something* to bring it back
but the UI is non-responsive).

I don't think that's true: the UI is responsive after popping up another modal dialog.
