Dialog freezes app on Windows after sleep

It could be the modal nature of the dialogs. I’ve had a similar thing happen when going to a stack as modal. If I switch to another app and then back again, the controls in the modal stack are unresponsive, which made me avoid that technique like the plague.

It's just the built-in LiveCode "ask password" dialog. We've only tested on one machine running Windows 8, but the client says it has happened many times on that computer. I could put up a separate stack instead but it's easier to just use the dialog.

I don't have Windows 8 here to try it on but if anyone else wants to test, I'd love to hear what happens. Just type "ask password hello" in the message box and walk away until the computer sleeps. Then see what happens. We're using LiveCode 6.6, btw.

Hm...just happened to think, there was that freeze on Windows in 6.6 that got fixed in 6.7. I wonder if that's it.
