Well I checked it out.. and while the transient popup code was causing 
problems, after removing it I still have occasional lazarus lock-ups on RH 
7.3, so I am guessing that it may still lock-up RH 8,though I don't have it 
yet to test. I tried switching to borderles dialogs,and it worked, however 
it caused the WM to try and show it as a dialog.. aka sound affects if 
enabled, show's up in the task bar etc. I will try and work around that if 
possible, but for the moment I am clueless as to how.
