So, let me double check:
1. if I apply your current fix and Alt-Tab out of the print dialog, I'll
get to some other app running on my desktop.
2. When I Alt-Tab back to Java, I'll get to the open print dialog.
3. The Java Frame cannot be activated by any means while the print
dialog is displaying.
Are all the above points true?

I'd suggest to look at how the dialog is created in the printing code in JDK, and make sure they show the dialog modally (using the native modality support on OS X). In this case the OS will not allow one to Alt-Tab out of the print dialog to another window of the same app until the dialog is closed.
