Hi all,

please review the fix:
for the following bug:

The problem is that  when we create modal dialog we can't set the
  whole browser as its parent window, due some limitation of browser API.
  So that means we have to emulate modal dialog behavior.
  When modal dialog is opened applet reject focus events - so the applet in
  browser can not become active while modal dialog is opened.
As result we can get in situation when modal dialog is closed, but 
applet is inactive
and doesn't recognize any user input.
The fix tracks closing modal dialogs and if browser active it activates 
applet too.
