Under Linux, Modal forms and "stay on top" are simply requests to the
window manager. Not all windows managers are equal, and will not
always act on your request.

You will find that in the case of Modal forms, you might be able to
click and bring focus to other non-modal forms, but you shouldn't be
able change anything in those forms.

What Window Manager are you using?
