Summary0000757: Modalness of reload dialog boxes is broken
Description- On Windows:
If activating the IDE whose dialog popped up by clicking on the IDE's window, it is still possible to access the menus until we click on the actual message box.
This also happens when alt-tabbing to the IDE while the message box is already up.

- On Linux:
I remember not being able to give focus back to the IDE after the reload dialog comes up, or only with a great amount of trouble.
TagsNo tags attached.

At least on Windows, this seems to have been resolved by disabling file monitors reentrancy:

Awaiting feedback from Redj to verify this is still an issue on Linux and detail the problems.

tried and failed to reproduce this with a touch to .ec/.epj
the little window is very modal!
it shows alone over whatever else is on the screen without activating it's parent ide but once you click / alt-tab to the ide in question, no menu acces or access of any sort to the parent (the ide) windows...
even when another modal window (project settings) already present
no issues of being able to click or type into the ide or any other dialog

Let's test this thoroughly on:
- Cinnamon
- Unity

And et's try to touch multiple files (.epj, added .epj, .ec files) and clicking off and on the various windows

cinnamon, unity, gnome, kde
.epj, .ec
multiple windows
clicking, menus, code editor
minimizing ide while modal is popped up
clicking everything again
keybord... shortcut keys..

unable to reproduce anything that *really* shouldn't happen or any blocking issue
only thing that happens is in some DE the modal dialogs like findinfiles and globalsettings will disappear behind the main ide window but those occurancees seem to exclude messagebox.

in unity
I just got something where I can't access the ide's menus even if it's in focus
the rest works fine but can't access the menus (mouse / keyboard)
this is not exactly related to the modalness of the reload dialogs
and am unable to reproduce
