That seems like a bug. We have a lot of bug fixes in the new upcoming
versions, but it would of of great help if you could provide a test case or
a VC# solution so we can test.

> Hi All,
> I am using Mono on OpenSUSE 11.1 and SUSE Linux Enterprise 11
> I have a kiosk application created with VS2008, compiled in MonoDevelop on
> OpenSUSE 11.1 and then exported to the machine running SUSE and Mono.
> All forms are of a fixed size taking the full aspect of the screen. Screen
> resolution 800x600 and so is all form sizes.
> I only have 1 issue left... and need community help.
> The first form (Starting Form) of the program, thus the one that should
> always be under all other forms... sometimes appears as the top-most form.
> When it does, that form is inactive (in a frozen state) and the only way to
> close it is via ALT-F4.  Once it's closed, we can see the form that the
> user
> clicked to try to open the other form.
> There is a need to open forms using ShowDialog() method. Actually i am

> 10-15 forms open one after another in a hierarchy. but, as all form are
> displayed using ShowDialog() method, there can be at most one direct child

> open another child form too. This is how navigation goes.
> When the Starting Form on-top stuck issue happens, it occurs randomly when

> doesn't matter what is on the form loading or the form that it comes from.
> It is random, the user could be clicking very slowly, one click per minute
> or 10 clicks per second, it occurs so randomly...
> Anyone experience this type of behavior and have a

> Looking forward to your replies.
> Thank you.
