However, if I directly execute the application (i.e.,, then the dialog opens above the main content window.  The same is true for all dialogs.  This seems to have changed in the past year with the application I'm bundling, though not much has changed with respect to the application.  Has anyone else run into this or anything similar?  Calls to set_transient_for seemingly make no difference.

I haven't noticed that behavior with Gramps, a PyGtk app that I bundle with gtk-mac-bundler and which opens a database-selection dialog at startup.  OTOH, that dialog is non-modal (it might even be a GtkWindow rather than a GtkDialog), so the circumstances might not be identical. GnuCash, a C program, sometimes pops up dialogs in weird places, but I haven't noticed any difference between launching it from Finder and a shell.

Py2app is a bit more invasive that gtk-mac-bundler, though, isn't it? Doesn't it create an executable from your python program?
