In the bug report, the configure used Lucid.  Lucid uses libXaw to
make dialogs, the other alternative for Emacs is Motif.  Dialogs
created with these toolkits does set the property (I also checked
to be absolutly sure).

I checked the behaviour on CDE and it is easily reproduced
with that window manager.  There is an option "Allow Primary Windows On
Top" that seems to be on by default.  If one turns that off, CDE behaves
as all other window managers I tested (6 or 7), that is it does not cover
dialogs with the primary window.

Erajonj, try turning that option off and see if you get the behaviour
you want.
