There are some problems when an application (only gtk tested) opens a dialog in illume.

Shortly the can't moved or resized. Neither from the application itself - Only illume seems able to resize them.

An example: gpe-scap "Browse..." dialog. If you try to expand it (using the "> Browse for other folders" expander) the dialog won't change it's size and so it won't be redesigned correctly.
But there's something of worst: if you open the same dialog in landscape-mode, the keyboard pop-ups and resize the dialog that now has an eight of few pixels; if you close the keyboard, the dialog won't resize to a bigger height, so it is not usable at all (it's pratically a line...).

I think that illume shouldn't resize these dialgs at all when the keyboard it's shown and should allow the user to move them around in the screen.
A cool feature would be: if you're editing a text-field in a dialog, then the keyboard should pop-up, while the dialog should keep its original size but moving itself in a position which would allow the user to view the selected text field. As soon as the keyboard is closed the dialog should go back to its original position.

BTW I don't really know if this is easily doable.

It's impossible to re

Also midori has the same problems.
I can post some screenshots if it's needed.
