I think the new window-placement behavior is an improvement for most
people. Nonetheless, it seems to be a problem for you so I've changed
it into a preference (with the new behavior as the default). Starting
with tomorrow's daily build there will be a preference in the General
category called "Try to avoid placing dialogs over main window" which
you can change to "false". Unfortunately the daily build for Windows
hasn't been working lately, so it may be a few days before you can get
a version with this preference available...
