Is hiding a modal dialog the same as closing it?

No, they're different. Hiding a stack just removes it from view but it 
remains in the message path and in the openStacks. Closing a stack 
removes it from the message path and from the openStacks.

A hidden stack that is re-shown later will not receive any of the 
"open*" messages because it is already open, it just isn't being drawn 
on screen. A closed stack will receive all the open* messages because it 
really is opening again.
