I just gave it a try and it put the "Add startup Program" window behind
the sessions window and it would not come in front of it.  Move the
sessions window and I'll bet you find it.  I was also able to add a
program to startup.

Oh yeah, if it's just that it's already filed on gnome.org. The app doesn't 
set the WM_TRANSIENT_FOR hint so the modal dialog gets buried.

Comment 3 Elton Woo 2003-01-03 23:43:31 UTC
OH, wait a moment.... by *shifting* the "Sessions" window a bit, I get
to actually _see_ the input dialog.... <*sheesh*!!>...

OK. I'll go and define 80615 as NOTABUG.
