The windows refered to in the bug report are:
- the celestial browser;
- the tour guide; and
- the controls help.
Only the celestial browser is implemented at the moment in the KDE version and
yes it is modal.
Initialy I implemented it as a modeless window but it made celestia crash
which at the time took down my system too (buggy NVidia drivers...). Anyway
it works better now but I'm not entirely satisfied with the modeless
behaviour. I'd like to be able to restore and bring to front the window if
it's already open but I haven't been able to make it work for now. There are
also some problems in fullscreen mode.
The other dialogs: configuration, go to... should be left as modal I think.
