turning off modal dialogs

In my June 29th post "tweaking cinnamon," I mentioned a tip I found at MPHouse Blog about disabling the "attach_modal_dialogs" setting in Cinnamon. They've got another post about doing the same thing for GNOME Shell; this time, the setting is at dconf-editor > org > gnome > shell > overrides > attach_modal_dialogs. Just remove the check from the box there.

I noticed that this is not an issue in GNOME 3.2 in Fedora 16 -- there, in fact, dconf-editor doesn't even have anything called "overrides" under org > gnome > shell -- but the tweak is applicable in GNOME 3.4 in Ubuntu 12.04.
