I'm not saying I want it to behave this way -- I'm saying that I haven't
been able to fix it yet.

No, I want it to behave correctly :/

Doesn't help (I've tried that) because this also disables its minimize
box... (I can try again, maybe I've done something wrong)

The dialog is created, it does all kinds of stuff inside its constructor
and the makes itself modal with "ShowModal()". That's probably not how
such a dialog is supposed to be implemented, though.

Nope. I don't know why but right-clicking on the task bar entry didn't
even show the context menu in that case.
