I don't understand it either, though it was a change done by me 2000/05/19

Might have had something to do with transient-for dialog handling back then.

I don't dare changing this in 3.0.x now, but we'll do it for 3.1.

As a workaround for KDEPrint, you may call reparent() with creator as argument 
after you created the progress dialog.
