Dialogs which have no transient parent or root window being
their tranisent parent are the ones which will be visible in
the tasklist.
All such dialogs will be *always* on top of the window
group i.e they would transients for the whole group.
1) Modal dialogs
* If you wish to open another window from a modal dialog
open *only* a modal dialog and set it's transient parent.
2) Normal dialog
without transient parent
* If you wish to open another window from a normal dialog
open either a normal dialog or a modal dialog only.
Set the transient parent for the child dialog if you do not
want them to be transient for all the other windows in the group.
with transient parent
* If you wish to open another window from a normal dialog
you could open any type of window.
