Then it must be a bug in the toolkit (LCL or even GTK2).  For example
in fpGUI - You can set focus to other non-modal forms and move them
(but no editing), while a modal form is showing, but the modal form is
always above it's Parent form. If you click on the parent form, the
model form will appear above it. So you don't have the issue of not
"finding" the modal form again.
