Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open the software center
2. Click on buy the new background
3. When the payment dialog is opened, show the desktop (with Super-D key, i.e.)
4. Restoring the software centre ui shows the main software center UI and it is blocked (because there is a dialog opened somewhere).

I wasn't able to restore the payment dialog and I had to kill the application

It looks like this is a problem with compiz and its stacking (z) order. It works correctly with metacity, but with compiz I can reproduce the problem.

This bug is fixed with software-center 4.0 in Natty as purchases are now implemented in-line and we no longer show a separate dialog.
