I don't know if this problem is specific to Quicksilver or a general problem with modal windows. I use QS to launch an applescript:
"run 'command' with administrator privileges"
But the modal window from QS to enter my password appears without focus. I can't I need to click on the window with the mouse in order to be able to activate it. I would guess that this is because QS has launched the applescript "in the background" as it were, and already returned focus to the previous app.
Is there a way to switch to this modal window using keyboard actions? It's something I need to do every morning and it's very annoying to have to switch over to it with the mouse every time. I can't command-tab to Quicksilver when the dialog is active.
