Description jpryor 2008-01-31 15:22:01 UTC
The Base Database Wizard dialog is a *suite* modal dialog.  If it's open (and
not dismissed), no other app can be started.

To reproduce:

  sbase &

Wait for the Database Wizard dialog to show up.  Ignore it.

  scalc # or swriter, or...

Actual Results: Nothing happens.  No new window for Calc/Writer/etc.

Expected Results: A new application window for the app I just started.

Double-clicking a file or trying any other mechanism to start an
program has the same result: nothing.

If you return to the Database Wizard dialog and create/open a database, *then* a
Calc/Writer/etc. window will be displayed.

If you instead return to the Database Wizard dialog and Cancel, Calc/Writer/etc.
is NOT displayed.

This is quite counter-intuitive.  A single dialog shouldn't prevent the starting
of other applications within the suite.

confirm, set target and send to the right developer.
I also think so that the base wizard should not block the whole office.
