Fair enough. I see that many GTK apps don’t use modal windows for About 
or other dialogs, and as a user I think it’s a Good Thing™. Would you be 
so kind as to open a bug on upstream’s bugzilla to ask for this? Or is 
it already changed in the dev branch?

I’m perfectly ok with that. Thanks for your work.
