[Gambas-user] Quirky Showmodal from Full Screen Mode

Here is an issue that I have run into, but I am not the first:


Okay, I have Linux Mint 17 Mate.

So, create a Qt or Gtk project (or download attached).  Add a second form, accept the default name.  Put this in the main form code:

Public Sub Form_KeyPress()

        Select Case Key.Code
          Case Key["1"]
            Me.FullScreen = Not Me.FullScreen

          Case Key["2"]
            Form1.title = Str(Now)
        End Select


Run the project.  Press [1] a few times, works as expected.

When the form is not full screen, press [2], works as expected.

Close the second form by clicking its 'x'.

Press [1] to go into full screen.  works as expected.

Press [2].

Now things don't work any more.  The form apparently opens, but it is hidden by the full screen form instead of showing.  Even though the full screen form is on top it doesn't have focus and thus will not take any keystrokes.

To get out, I have to "Alt-Tab' to the IDE and stop the program.

What to do?
