Well, many many years ago, in my dreaded times of windows using (shudder), I 
was making powerpoint presentations for my sci. research that were able to 
pop up avi flicks at the click with the mouse on an active (full)screen 
(presentation's) element. The window with the flick _had_ to go above the 
fullscreen powerpoint. At that time, the fullscreen releaved mouse and 
keyboard grab too (as long as the focus was on the flick window).

Thus, you never know.
