If you don't want them to interfere with the rest of the GUI, you
simply don't use gtk_dialog_run(). Instead, you show dialogs using
gtk_widget_show() and all windows will run without interference. After
all, gtk_dialog_run() is merely a convenience method that makes it
easy to use dialogs that need urgent user intervention. If you don't
need this kind of functionality from dialog, simply showing it will
also work.
