When you click the allegro button it runs the get_option_recursive()
function, this puts up a dialog window and calls
gtk_window_set_keep_above (GTK_WINDOW (dialog), TRUE) on it. It uses
gtk_dialog_run() so it is modal, that is, no other windows can receive
input until you dismiss it.
Palette windows are not modal, and indeed it would be bad if they even
got the keyboard focus when you clicked on them, as you would then find
you keypresses being ignored until you had clicked back on to the main
At least with palettes you can dock them (right-click and choose edit
palette), so this brings them within the Apple philosophy of one
application one window.
