I just had a quick play around...

On my machine (Windows 7, LiveCode 5.x), I can bring up a new main 
stack, and set it to be modal (it has no buttons to close, remove or 

Hold Ctrl-Shift, right click in the window, and you'll get a menu, where 
you can change the 'Stack Mode' to toplevel, where your controls come back.

(On my Mac, it seems to be Command-Ctrl-Shift left-click).
