Modeless screens on Windows (SOLVED!!!)

Ken - you nailed it, thank you so much!!!!

I had the text size set to medium (125%).  I changed it to small (100%),
re-logged in and the title appeared.  Just to be double sure, I went back
to medium text size and the title disappeared again.  I will be sure to
mention this problem somewhere in the docs for the product.

Surely this is a Windows bug?  Even with the text size at medium, the title
appears if the stack is top-level, just not when it's modeless.  Be that as
it may, I can now get on with my life.
