Description Scott Tsai 2005-11-03 10:44:37 EST
Description of problem:
When the modal "New Project" dialog is open, it blocks all user interface
operations in the online-help window.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch eclipse
2. Help -> Help Contents
3. File -> New -> Project
4. Try using the help window

Actual results:
All user interface operations in the help window are blocked.

Expected results:
The "New Project" dialog should only block operations in the main eclipse
window. Compare with the behavior of kdevelop or gnome applications.

Additional info:
Perhaps we should check the modal dialog implementation in swt-gtk in general. A
naive guess would be that the main eclipse window and the help window shares a
main loop.

I spoke with Billy Biggs about this on IRC and he said he's reference some
upstream bugs when he gets a chance.  It's not something specific to our builds.
