Description Xisco Faulí 2018-09-04 11:30:52 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open LibreOffice
2. Go to Tools - Options - Advanced and enabled Experimental features
3. Click on Apply -> Restart dialog is prompted
4. Click on the underlying tools dialog

Observed behaviour: The restart dialog goes to the background. it's not possible to interact with the tools dialog until the restart dialog is closed, making it very confusing.

The Apply button was added recently in https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=92026741ed7e83119f1de51528480c5a937c0e88
