      Description

      Wayland does not have a concept that matches Qt's application global modality. For example, a QMessageBox without a parent should stay on top and block input to all other windows, but this does not work properly for Qt Wayland clients.

      This can be easily worked around in most cases by specifying a parent for the modal dialog, but this is a cross-platform regression.
