Sawfish, with "keep transient windows stacked above parents" selected.
First, select a gnome terminals option window with the right button. The
select the font chooser - this window can't be on top of the original
options window, making it hard to see what font you're choosing
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Gold-release

Should be all fixed. Sawfish now allows windows TRANSIENT_FOR the root window to
go below their group, and also gnome-terminal now sets the settings dialog
TRANSIENT_FOR the terminal instead of the root window. The font dialog is mildly
broken (should be transient for the settings dialog), but that is a separate
issue and is a known gnome-libs bug that requires binary compat breakage.
Don't know if this is the same bug but :
In pinstripe GNOME desktop if I open gnorpm and gnome-terminal and
click on INSTALL in gnorpm , by that opening another window titled
"Install" which loads the contents of the inserted pinstripe CD 1,
and try to install a package that will have unresolved dependencies,
an error dialog will pop up. Now I put the gnome-terminal window on
top, but so that the title bars of the others are visible. I click
( left mouse button ) on the title bar of the "Install" window. It
should be brought to front , but it isn't !
If I right click on it , then it goes to background. If again right
click it ( or left , same effect ) the it comes up, but not all the
way. The order starting from the lowest is :
- gnorpm main window
- gnorpm Install window , the one I clicked
- gnorpm "Dependency problems" dialog
- GNOME-Terminal , still on the top !
I would expect the "Install" window on top or the error dialog,
but not gnome-terminal !
Please check this.
My problem is fixed in Guiness ( RH 7.0 )
