Bug with multiple frames / dialog box

Problem:
- Modal dialog blocks all opened frames

Scenario:
- Open a project in a first IDEA frame (main window)
- Open a second project in a separate frame

Then either:

- Stay in the second frame and run any command that opens a modal dialog => The first frame can't be raised on top (can't get focus)

- Stay in the first frame and run any command that opens a modal dialog => The second frame can be focused, but the whole GUI acts like if there was a modal dialog on top of it (can't click anywhere...)

Blame SUN for it.

Yep. They even don't consider it as a bug, just a RFE.

It looks like there are some comments on that bug which describe a
workaround. Perhaps the IntelliJ guys could look into using the
workaround to make IDEA more usable until the JDK is fixed?

Ciao,
