Well without getting into a long explanation of what window stacks are in 
mythui. The former is for main screens, and the latter for popups - but what 
is a popup and what is a 'main' screen is difficult to define, normally being 
a matter of judgement. No screen in mythui has to be fullscreen nor do popups 
have to be less than fullscreen.

I've just checked with a theme that falls back to the defaults and I can see 
the problem is just that the dialog lacks a background, I'll have a fix in svn 
in a few minutes.
