Bug Description

1. Open gedit, type something in this window, open another gedit document, then break it out into a separate window or right-click tab-> "Move to new Window". Type something in this second window as well. (http://i.imgur.com/wha4fUr.png)

2. Now select the gedit Icon in the launcher, you should now get the overview mode to choose one of the two windows. ( http://i.imgur.com/eyiukGY.png)

3. Close one of the windows in overview mode, by hitting the "x". Now for a split second the "Save changes" dialog will get focus and then quickly loose focus. At this point you can hit the "X" as many times as you want and nothing happends.

I would expect this dialog to stay in focus so that I can answer and close the program. Probably the intended action would be that the window I tried closing gets focus, therefore also giving the dialog focus.
