Revolution stack always on top

Hi Paolo,

Setting the systemWindow property to true should work as you expect it:
The window is always on top of any other window (rev window or any  
other app window).
I encourage you to check, uncheck and check again the box in the  
property palette: it does not seem to respond every time...
Note that when a window is a system window, its style stays  
'toplevel' even if the title bar becomes a palette title bar and the  
dock box is of course disabled. In addition, you can set the  
windowshape of such a window without affecting its systemwindow  
property but changing its decorations will set systemWindow to false...
