Modal Dialog support with Tabs in IE7

    It would be nice if IE7 would handle Modal Dialogs a little more gracefully.

    For example, I was on this forum in one tab, then started Windows Update in
    another tab. Windows Update opens a modal dialog for the downloads which
    then locks all of IE7 (i.e. I can't get back to my other tabs)

    It would be nice if a Modal Dialog was only "model" for the one tab that
    generated the dialog and not the entire application. This would allow you to
    work on other tabs while a modal dialog is up for another tab.

    Of course, you could always open another IE7 window but then what it the
    point of tabs? :)
