+Summary: Modal forms on Mono/Windows do not behave exactly like those on MS .NET
+Description of Problem:
+If you call ShowDialog(IWin32Window) on a Form, the Form passed as 
+parameter to ShowDialog can still be displayed over the modal Form, the 
+modal Form's title bar does not flash when you click the owner Form, etc.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Compile and run the following program.
+using System;
+using System.Windows.Forms;
+class TestForm : Form {
+    static void Main() {
+        Application.Run(new TestForm());
+    }
+    public TestForm() {
+        Text = "Owner";
+    }
+    protected override void OnShown(EventArgs e) {
+        base.OnShown(e);
+        Form f = new Form();
+        f.Text = "Modal";
+        f.ShowDialog(this);
+    }
+2. Click on the "Owner" form.
+3. Click on the "Owner" button in the task bar.
+Actual Results:
+Step 2: the title bar of the "Modal" form does not flash.
+Step 3: the "Owner" form is displayed over the "Modal" one.
+Expected Results:
+Step 2: the title bar of the "Modal" flashes.
+Step 3: the "Modal" remains over the "Owner" form.
+How often does this happen? 
+Always (on the SVN version).
