[squeak-dev] modal dialogs interaction regression

Hi Marcel,

It seems I stumbled on the only dialog case where the problem
manifests and incorrectly attributed it to all cases.  Sorry.

It's how I typically exit the image gracefully -- Alt+F4, followed by
one of the keys (Y or N, with ESC to cancel).  I'm on Linux.

It now only works after the Hand has graced the dialog,
until then it won't respond to any of the keys, and ESC will also
produce a menu and allow further input outside the dialog.
