The problem, if it is a problem, is in View and event handling.

I' d not be so drastic. I use it extensively without problems with already open windows. I'd say that RT does not give us all the logic we need, we are free to make some strange things, but we can also not to make them. It is to us to check things before doing. I'm speaking of using directly show-popup/hide-popup, not of request-xxx (which i do not know well, because i do not use). --- Ciao Romano
