This is a really difficult bug:
It is either a problem with sending window messages, or
incorrect handling in DefDialogProc, or
a really obscure bug in handling of surfaces.

What you are seeing are dialog windows drawn on top of fullscreen ddraw. Now a
standard message box or other dialog windows work fine. The problem appears
because Starcraft/Diablo have a library called storm.dll. That library has
custom dialog functions (like "SDlgCreateDialog") they use in place of the
standard windows API ones. Essentially they are creating dialog windows from
scratch. I have not been able to identify what it is depending on for its

If you have any experience with custom dialog windows on top of fullscreen ddraw
apps, please help :)
