What's not acceptable is this. If I go to the Entourage Space, write a message and hit 'send' and then immediately (as I'm used to) jump to, say, my Safari space and continue working, I will get a 'bong' a few seconds later as Entourage pops up the dialog. I go back to the Entourage space...and it's not there. I search madly throughout every Space I can find. It turns out that it places the dialog *behind* the Safari window I was working on when it notified me - and bringing Entourage to the front, rather than popping that dialog, instead shifts me to the Entourage workspace, guaranteeing I won't find it. Of course, no Entourage window will respond to focus, since the application is modal and waiting on that (now hidden) dialog. The only way to get Entourage back is to locate the dialog by using Expose on the proper workspace, or by manually shoving around all my windows until I see it, and then dismissing it.
