Hi Guy,
	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...
