      Description

      Customer Problem Description:
      ------------------------------

      The current behavior for modal dialogs is to block input to all windows
      except for itself. This behavior is described in bug 4124096.

      We disagree with the analysis in 4124096. For an example on Windows, open
      Internet Explorer. From the file menu select New and then select Window.
      There are now two IE frames displayed. For one of the IE frames, select
      the Help menu and select About. Input to the frame that opened the About
      dialog is blocked, but input to the other frame is not blocked.

      We would like to see the behavior changed so that modality is limited to
      the parent frame of the modal dialog, not the entire VM. I have included a
      simple program that demonstrates the current behavior. It has two frames.
      Each frame has a button that opens a modal dialog.

      Sample Code attached.
