Look at the set_modal(), set_transient_for() and set_sensitive() methods to do 
what you want.  (set_modal() is actually the one you are after if I 
understand your question, but you usually want to use it in combination with 
the others.)

I would normally use Gtk::Main::run() to enter the blocking loop and 
Gtk::Main::quit() to leave it, but Gtk::Main::run(Gtk::Window&) may work 
(although I normally reserve that for the main program object which, when 
closed, will terminate the program.)
