Thanks for that.

I also made a commit:

Revision 441 of synfigstudio in SVN ( )
uses set_transient_for() as you suggested, to make the dialogs pop to
the front when the toolbox window is clicked, and also to make them
hide when the toolbox window is minimised.  This is a little better
than what metacity was doing, since in metacity there didn't seem to
be any way to hide the dialog windows.

I've been unable to find any way to set the transient_for property to
be None or Root, as mentioned in the webpage you referred me to - I'm
using gtkmm and its set_transient_for() method seems to only accept a
single Gtk Window as its parameter.
