I think I have not been clear. I'm not saying that the problem is
that INFORM stops other windows from working; that is by design
and is done in SYSTEM/VIEW/WAKE-EVENT. The problem is that INFORM
does not correctly handle the keys you set in LAYOUT in the window
that you are showing with INFORM. I.e. when you use the REQUEST
function, the requester that is shown does not respond to the "Y"
and "N" keys as it should (based on its source code).
I hope this is clearer now. If not, maybe someone speaking a
better English than me could explain it better. :)
