Aha! Thanks for pointing me at liberutils. Using that to do the explicit requests when I'm doing things GTK+ can't seem to figure out = problem solved

I don't have the details at hand, but I believe this is reworked in the 2.0 release so that the dialog is removed as soon as the application has started.
I worked around this by running the program in the background from a shell script. Trying to open a full screen window first didn't seem to help, but I'm still poking around ...
