Hmm. Then shouldn't that enforce the proper Z-ordering

The problem is that I don't always have to switch away
quickly. I've noticed in 3.4 that often autocomplete
locks up the whole editor UI for 10-15 seconds so I
switch away to something else instead of waiting for
autocomplete to popup the window.
