Modal windows stay above windows that they are modal for, 
not above other windows to which they are not related, but in this 
case, pd is hiding modal under its own window.  
What is possible - to set Pd above other layers, but then you have pd
console _always_ above all other windows, which is also not ideal.
There is no concept of "globally modal" windows in openbox, which is 
very much on purpose. 
Fact is, that in other WM it works fine, and while trying to close
unsaved patch i get modal popping up over any other windows, but 
still pd must be requesting something strange for its modal dialog, 
making it a child of a single window which is not the one you're 
working in or something.
