The dialog should be brought to the front, it's a bug that it's not.
What's unclear is exactly why it's not being brought to the front.  The
dialog should _not_ be model; but at the same time we want to suppress
focus-stealing-prevention, which puts the dialog behind whatever window
you're typing into.  Focus-stealing-prevention may be a factor in your
problem here.
