After some investigation, I've come up with 2 methods to achieve the desired 
result. The first one would be to disable all the task top-level windows 
(like simple modal dialog boxes disable their owner window). The second one 
would be to modify the focus policy to ensure that a modal dialog box will 
never beocme hidden by a non-modal window.

I suppose that the first method is the best one. Could anyone help me to get 
a list of all the top-level windows of a task ? I also would like to know 
where I should store all the handles to those windows in order to re-enable 
them when the dialog box gets destroyed.
