      It appears that the concept of modality of the user interface has gotten tied directly to the blocking of the program stack.
      Just because I want to prevent the user from interacting with other windows while a modal dialog is open,
      it does not imply I want to block my program stack. I will give you that there are times where I might want to do both,
      but not all the time.

      Are the modality of the UI and the blocking of the program stack considered a feature or a bug. I certainly consider it a bug.
