      Description

      Modeless dialogs are not kept on top when the user clicks on the main window application. The dialogs "disappear" behind the application main window.

      This problem is happening only on Mac, not on Windows or Linux (Gnome). I noticed this problem after upgrading my application from Qt 4.6.3 to the latest version (Qt 4.8.3, compiled with cocoa framework).

      Attached is an example that demonstrates the problem.
