Why not just

d.Present() or d.Show()

You don't have to Run() a dialog, you can treat it like a normal window.
I do this all the time, like...

dialog = new ExecutantSearchDialog(
	      string.Format("Executant for Task#{0}", task.ObjectId));
dialog.SetExecutantId +=  new

Very useful when you need more back from the dialog than just a result
