Right, sorry.  The issue still stands, though.

I didn't mean the owing window, I meant the other windows on the
desktop, belonging to applications other than Emacs.  Using
HWND_TOPMOST makes me unable to raise any window of another
application above the dialog box in the z-order.  The existing code
does allow that.

OK, so the call to w32_dialog_in_progress has nothing to do with the
z-order of the dialog wrt its owning frame, right?

The former.

Yes, I know.  That wasn't what I was worried about.
