Bug Description

When gnusim8085 is started, the startup dialog is shown. This dialog gets minimised if any other area in the screen is clicked leading to a disabled main gnusim8085 dialog. This is not very intuitive.

Possible solutions:
1. No startup-dialog.
2. Start-up dialog with "Show this dialog during startup" checkbox.
3. Don't minimise the start-up dialog when a screen area outside is clicked.

Hi,

I didn't see this on the latest master. Neither in the ubuntu distribution. Was this seen on the latest?

The problem seems to be with GTK+. The startup dialog has been a 'modal' window since start (or since when I started looking into the code). It seems the either the behavior of modal window has changed recently or this is a bug in GTK+.

Looks like I found the solution. The current startup dialog is a modal GtkWindow. The solution is to change it to modal GtkDialog. Will commit the change shortly.
