Report from Eugenia on Phoebe3, have not yet tried to reproduce:

It's correct. "Run Command" is not a application, but a modal dialog of kdesktop. 

If you start "Run Command" from kde menu or with right-clicked on the Desktop,
kdesktop has got a signal for a "Run Command" modal dialog, which blocks input
to other visible windows in the same application.
