Well without getting into a long explanation of what window stacks are in
mythui. The former is for main screens, and the latter for popups - but what
is a popup and what is a 'main' screen is difficult to define, normally being
a matter of judgement. No screen in mythui has to be fullscreen nor do popups
have to be less than fullscreen.
I've just checked with a theme that falls back to the defaults and I can see
the problem is just that the dialog lacks a background, I'll have a fix in svn
in a few minutes.
