 everaldo, I think this is because of some changes I did, so unless 
 you have any objections, I take this bug:)

+Gert, On Windows I can get this to work, so I suppose you're testing 
+it on Linux.
+* The modal form is not displayed in the taskbar.
+This is a window manager decision, we're creating modal forms with 
+the _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_DIALOG hint, as opposed to 
+_NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_NORMAL (this is what I changed a few weeks ago). 
+I can change it back, but it will break something else (modal windows 
+will show behind toolwindows), and I think this is the lesser of 
+those evils.
+* Clicking the owner form in the taskbar should not minimize any 
+form; currently, it minimizes both the owner and the modal form (and 
+the instructions form).
+Again a windows manager decision (can't remember where I read it on 
+the web, but it's because otherwise it would be impossible to do 
+anything with the main window unless you close the dialog, which is 
+not seen as a good idea on Linux).
+So, I'll close this as FIXED, since at least one of the original 
+issues were fixed :)
