Well, the point of a fullscreen window usually is to take the entire
screen and cover everything else that might be there.

Since some programs want to display dialogs over fullsceeen windows
window managers might react to some hint and do this (I have also seen
programs/window managers where this does not work and one has to
un-fullscreen the window to see the dialogs).

You might try

  gtk_window_set_type_hint(GTK_WINDOW(dialog), GDK_WINDOW_TYPE_HINT_DIALOG);

or something else the dialog code does to convince the window manager
that you want a window over a fullsceen window.  Some other hint might
also work/be more appropriate.
