Hmm, IsDialogMessage seems to be a bit of a mystery.
I had a look at it several times already, and I could never quite
find out how it is supposed to handle stuff from the docu available in
various places...

We actually might want to write our very own manual page for this function;
given the current documentation status of this function, it definitely
deserves it (as opposed to some other much better described functions !).
